  • Title: Madhouse of Ideas: @chrissineranzti et al
    Descriptive info: Tweet-tweet who is there? Using Twitter in teacher education.. Setting the scene.. by Chrissi.. @chrissinerantzi.. The Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice, is a programme offered at the University of Salford to staff who teach or support learning and leads to a recognised teaching qualification in Higher Education.. But that is not all! We do much more than that.. We, the tutors on the programme, want our students to think, un-think and re-think their practices and challenge their beliefs and pre-conceptions.. Transformative learning? Yes, definitely! We achieve this through modelling active experimentation, creating immersive learning experiences and collaboration and peer learning.. We challenge our own beliefs as well and become learning partners in this journey.. Contemporary pedagogies, together with older and newer technologies are integrated into the fabric of the programme to connect people, ideas and minds, co- and re-construct knowledge but also to experiment in a safe and supported environment.. We emphasise collaboration, peer and social learning and endeavour to practise what we preach.. Social learning? Offline through traditional approaches and online through the use of social media, including Twitter.. Twitter offers a great opportunity to share! Share experiences, ideas, resources, make announcements, communicate, but also create, enhance and maintain connections and enable us to reach out and become part of two-way open networks and learning communities.. What did we do before Twitter? Individual modules have made use of Twitter for over two years now and we just moved to a programme wide approach.. Finally!!! Most of us were new to Twitter when we started but we threw ourselves into the Twittersphere.. Progressively we matured in the way we are using it on the programme using a sharing and caring approach.. We have seen increase in engagement and connections been made by tutors and students.. Also, some of our students are using now Twitter beyond the programme, where they build their own Personal Learning Network and have started using Twitter with their own students.. We have established our own little network of tutors and students but also created links to practitioners in other institutions which enrich our picture of the landscape in Higher Education.. Our students’ Twitter stories and voices help us taste some of the richness of their learning experiences, their dilemmas and emotional rollercoasters, as well as adventures and journeys of discovery.. Delete, delete, tweet, tweet.. by Gemma.. @GemmaLace.. Gasp! Shock! Horror! They (those crazy PGCAP folk ) want me to use Twitter for learning?! That social networking thingy that I dabbled with years ago to find out what Gary Barlow had eaten for his dinner, is now being used in teaching?! Madness, madness I tell thee.. Ok so maybe I am over dramatising my initial thoughts when starting the core module of the PGCAP, but it’s not that far from the truth.. When I logged into my account for the first time in years I was mortified to realise my Twitter account was ‘open’ for the world to see and the few tweets I had posted accused Twitter users of being celebrity stalkers (ahem) and additionally I proclaimed my undying love for siRNA technology (geek!).. After quickly deleting all my previous posts and making my account private, I started exploring.. OMG as the kids would say, Twitter had changed! All my favourite scientific publications, researchers, old lecturers etc were tweeting! Why had I not heard of this??? All of a sudden I was exposed to hundreds of opinions, resources, articles etc that my peers were exploring- it was like I could overhear all the conversations I previously only dreamed of being part of but dare I clear my throat and join in? My first few tweets were very well thought out, I wanted to sound witty, intelligent and passionate to my followers.. All 7 of them.. But what was the point if I couldn’t actually be involved in the conversation? It became clear that it simply wasn’t good enough to be a bystander, consuming information without any actual contribution.. I would have to actively participate in order to become PART of this.. So, I decided to be brave and ‘open up’ my feed.. I mean, who was I hiding from? So what if students reads it? So what if my friends see my true geekiness? I have things I want to say! I have ideas and opinions I want to explore! I WANT to meet like-minded people and have exchanges with them in a way that is much less scary than ‘in the real world’.. All of a sudden, the exciting keynote speaker at a conference that I didn’t get to chat to in person is having a Twitter conversation with me on the train on the way home! Suddenly, I have found that there is a lecturer in a building 100m away from my own that shares the same passion for enhancing student experiences with a little help from technology! I am suddenly aware that my best friends husband is an expert on virtual learning environments (funny- it never came up in the pub.. !) My initial network on Twitter consisted of a very small group of fellow scientists or scientific publishers.. Now, I am communicating with high school teachers, technology specialists, lecturers, writers, museum curators, events promoters, students etc and now I AM THE ONE encouraging students to sign up to the programme Twitter feed that I have set up! I have come full circle! Thank goodness for those crazy folk at the PGCAP !.. Can you be too open? Twitter as a living room vs Twitter as a shop window.. by Becci.. @chasing_ling.. I’m open, and, if I like something I really get involved often forgetting to think first! When I realised we used Twitter on the PGCAP to learn and grow on our course, I simply began tweeting indiscriminately! My tweets were about my subject and my blossoming interest in higher education but I had no rationale about what was ‘ok’ and what was ‘off limits’.. Consequently, the world read daily what films I watched, where I was on holiday, what I cooked for dinner you name it!.. One day, I found two of my students were ‘following’ me.. My account is not private.. A big knot developed in my stomach: ‘What if I’ve said something ‘bad’?’ It’s this experience that I reflect on here.. Can we be too open? How are we perceived online? What kind of space is Twitter? In the end, I conclude I treated Twitter like my front room when I should consider it a shop window, displaying me and my abilities professionally.. I’ve never intend to offend and since I feel truly good in my own skin for the first time ever I’m loath to  ...   time and support I genuinely cherish, but with one important factor: it’s done in a way that I find comfortable and that enables me to take that first step.. Opening up.. by Craig.. @despard1974.. Twitter, the big intelligent club that I didn’t feel confident stepping into in those early days.. I had an account before starting the PGCAP but wasn’t really using it.. Then I was encouraged to on the PGCAP.. I wasn’t sure how to What if I offended someone? What if I was too open? What if I said something wrong? Is what I was trying to say valid? All these questions plus the very new concept of Twitter from a technological and user viewpoint meant that it took me a few months and several attempts to increase my confidence.. What helped me most is being accepted into a (local) community of like minded people of whom some are personal friends.. The Direct Message (DM) feature helped me in those early days to increase confidence.. I felt safe to experiment and tone my messages with a developing friend within the confines of the DM feature.. This person was a confident Tweeter which helped my confidence greatly and I also developed a great friendship as a result of this activity which shows that Twitter has the potential to connect people.. Through the use of DM I wanted to visit Twitter more regularly to continue our conversations which did happen despite the limit of 140 characters per Tweet.. This didn’t hinder us at all! In the contrary our conversations were more focused.. And while I am probably more reserved face-to-face, online, I noticed that I found it easier to open up.. Whilst ‘DM’ing I would also venture away from the DM feature and check what other people I was following were saying and getting a taste of the wider Twittersphere.. More recently, I have grown my ‘local’ network within the University.. This created more chat threads in which I have felt comfortable in contributing.. This is due to these digital people that I have not met in real life giving me responses which makes me feel valid and included, and therefore I feel the need to give something back.. I now understand the importance of ‘giving back’ to the network.. I feel my next step is to venture beyond my ‘local’ safe zone into a larger arena and connect with others with whom I share an interest in educational technology.. I still feel more confident in my ‘local’ zone.. But I think this is just me and who I am.. When I ventured to the ‘wider’ zone once or twice over the past weeks I was again doubting myself as to whether I am doing it right and I am still not sure.. No, I am not giving up! In the contrary, I am stepping out of my comfort zone to strike up continued meaningful discussions with other Tweeters.. Another factor that is helping me to grow in confidence is my increasing knowledge and experimentation with educational technology and the realisation that my ideas mean something to others.. Yeh, I have something to contribute to the ‘network’ and it feels great!.. To tweet, or not to tweet?.. by Liz @.. Lizpeters01.. Twitter.. I’m sure most people have an opinion on it by now, and the idea of using it in education is certainly one that sparks quite the debate.. I would consider myself to still be a bit of a novice when it comes to Twitter.. I’ve been a rather avid Facebook user for years, and frankly, the idea of learning to navigate another social media site felt too tiresome to entertain.. I had a Twitter account, set up a couple of years ago, but had never really used it.. Until the PGCAP!.. Twitter was pretty much mentioned from day 1, as a useful tool in communicating, not only with each other, but with our students.. Now, this made sense to me, and I did agree with the idea in principle.. As mentioned, I used Facebook pretty avidly, as do my students.. They set up groups for each module, and made the content available to me, and it was a hugely useful tool to connect with them.. Let’s be honest, students can be slow to check and respond to university emails.. But getting them to check Facebook 6 times a day? Easy.. So, the idea of using Twitter in the same way, was pretty appealing to me.. Twitter was taking over as the ‘new’ social media kid in town, and I’d noticed a lot of my students using the hashtags on their Facebook profiles, as they were now referencing things on Twitter, or linking status’s/photo’s etc.. from Facebook to Twitter.. In terms of the PGCAP, the idea of using Twitter did conjure up some debates.. Was it fair? What if students didn’t want to sign up for it? Also, what if WE didn’t want to use it? The crux of the argument is – is Twitter useful? Does it enhance the student learning experience? Debatable, but in my view, there are more positives than negatives.. There was resistance in the PGCAP group, from those who thought it a waste of time, those who didn’t want to become involved in social media.. And – I do understand where they’re coming from.. Despite being a young(ish) lecturer, I’m pretty old fashioned in a lot of ways.. I can be resistant to new-fangled technologies, and there is certainly an intrusive whiff about the likes of Facebook and Twitter.. But – in terms of communicating with ease, and moving with the times, well, if you can’t beat them, you may as well tweet them.. The PGCAP programme team aims to provide a safe and supportive environment to all students who are teachers in HE to actively experiment, reflect on their practices, re-think the approaches they are using, and designing rich and stimulating learning opportunities.. This is reflected in the Twitter stories shared here by Gemma, Neil, Becci, Craig, and Liz, who are all students on the PGCAP programme, and the variety of their experiences captured in their personal stories and explorations show the richness and diversity of this programme.. They provide food for thought about the use of Twitter in a learning and teaching context for sharing, connecting, and developing professional practices.. Their experiences all have a common thread: using Twitter as an enabler and facilitator of new connections and allowing their experiences to expand much further than just the physical or virtual classroom within a module or programme.. The ‘virtual’ web that our students have woven through Twitter has blossomed into a supportive and collaborative network with very ‘real’ benefits..

He serves on the editorial boards of ten international journals, including ALT-J, Digital Culture and Education, and IRRODL and is co-editor of Interactive Learning Environments..

Two characters to talk about twitter.. The daddy: Why Twitter is so powerful.. The original post here.. There are two types of people in the world.. Those who get Twitter and those who don t.. OK, I m joking, but Twitter does seem to divide people.. What can you say that s worthwhile in 140 characters? some people ask.. Others claim that much of the Twitterverse is vacuous rubbish that isn t worth reading.. Well, anyone who uses Twitter on a regular basis will tell you that the power of the tool is not so much in its content, but in its ability to connect you to other people.. The same applies of course to any other social networking tool, but unlike Facebook for example, Twitter contains very few distractions.. It s stripped down and very simple.. There are no frivolous food fights, poking or third party games such as Farmville contained within its wrapper.. Twitter quite simply connects you with people who are interesting, informative or humourous.. And here s the real power: The more you connect on Twitter, the more connections you get.. For me, the value of Twitter is in tapping into its social critical mass.. I think that most people who try Twitter and fail to see its value don t give it enough time.. If they persisted and put some time into developing their contacts and connections on Twitter, they may discover that it  ...   was the only one.. C.. S.. Lewis.. The monster: “The Art of Twitter”.. this original post here.. Learning how to use Twitter as a tool to develop your personal learning network is not always simple, and as with any other social networking tools, there is an unwritten protocol.. There is quite an art to getting the best out of it.. When the Internet and e-mail was first emerging as a major communication tool set, several people proposed an Internet ettiquette, or Netiquette , which involved guidelines such as using UPPER CASE letters only if you were shouting.. Other devices for communication emerged such as emoticons, sideways smileys that were used to attempt to overcome the reduced social cues of text only talking.. We think the time has now come to introduce a set of guidelines for Twitter Twettiquette if you like and so Wolfgang Rheinhardt, Martin Ebner and I recently got together to write a paper for the World Computer Conference, held in September of 2010 in Brisbane, Australia.. I presented the paper, and we put together a slide set to accompany the presentation.. Here it is below, in all it s unexpurgated glory.. As you can see, it s entitled:.. All I need to know about Twitter I learned at kindergarten.. , and is, we think, a humourous, lighthearted take on using Twitter.. We hope it makes you smile, think and tweet some more..

  • Title: Madhouse of Ideas: @gregoriotoribio
    Descriptive info: Gregorio Toribio Alvarez.. He’s a primary school teacher, graduate from The Inmaculada Universitary School of Granada (Spain).. For 24 years, he has been teaching in different primary schools and degrees.. Very interested in computers, he began to learn by himself in the 80 s with a Spectrum computer.. Actually, he teaches in Abrucena to a group of 6 children six years old.. Very integrated in the Web 2.. 0 services and social networks, colaborates with some Centre of teachers training in Andalusia.. A Mad Man in Twitter land.. What am I doing here on a site called Twitter, which does not let me talk for more than 140 characters at a time!?.. It all started in May 2008 during the first meeting of Abla Blogs Rural.. In this networking event the keynote speakers were making a very weird thing whilst the others put forward their ideas: they were tweeting! Those of us, who like to try new stuff, didn’t waste time and got ourselves immediately on twitter.. We became twitters before they could say tweet! As it often is the case beginnings are tough.. I quickly realised that this was a banality because no one answered my tweets.. So I decided to put twitter aside for a while.. However, several months later, whilst teaching a course on social networks, Twitter started to acquire popularity.. From that moment on I became more involved with it than I had expected.. What have we done on Twitter then?.. Besides using it as a tool for the transmission of knowledge, consultation, debate, learning, sharing interesting links, etc.. , we have done some crazy things, such as:.. launching the first twitter race in history.. (http://goo.. gl/bdrFU.. ) with.. @diegogg.. The purpose was to explain how to time tweets (.. http://goo.. gl/3oxdz.. ), a novelty at that time.. playing and getting twitterers to contribute to #frasesdealumno[student quotes] (.. gl/PRaBI.. ) ,.. #twitterpelis.. [twitter movies] (.. gl/vf2bR.. ),.. #tuitrefranes.. [twitter idioms] (.. gl/awiAL.. #frasesdemadre.. [ mother quotes] (.. gl/s1iUd.. ) as to encourage creativity.. using.. #cadeneta20.. , as a twitter.. hashtag.. , to gather ‘partners in crime’ (aka, the “cuchipandi ) in order to appoint.. @Potachov.. for new Secretary-General of the Educational Web through a blog post (.. gl/wpk5V.. ) which was connected to 12 other blogs..  ...   to post spontaneous thoughts, as a way of sharing everyday life humor with the network.. Engaging in collaborative ventures such as the Miguel Hernandez project (.. gl/5A24A.. through the contacts made via Twitter.. Encouraging users to collaborate with.. @Olmillos.. and thus participate in his wallwisher on “Why using Twitter?”.. gl/hhihK.. Giving “celebrities” who are using twitter a few tips so that they can ‘come down to earth’ and act as ‘ordinary’ user.. gl/1vj51.. My latest ‘madness’: two posts (1).. #MDLINTSWY.. (My digital Life is not the same without you) (.. gl/QuIdz.. ) , which refers to users I recommend, and (2).. Twitregalos.. gl/AihQ0.. ) (Twitpresents), which focuses on giving virtual presents, as celebrated in Spain over the Christmas period on the Three Wise Men day.. (Context: As observed by the Spanish tradition, children receive their Christmas presents on the evening of January 5, as a reminder of those who came to bring presents to baby Jesus).. And, of course, finding many friends whom, little by little, I manage to devirtualize.. I will not name them because I m sure that would get you all bored, since there are quite a few.. I hope that these friendships I managed to make through twitter are long lasting, as long as they don’t become aware of what my shrink says about me (.. gl/BsjCK.. fortunately the report is only in Spanish.. )..

It s truly amazing how creativity of certain people (in this case you) can be fostered with Twitter.. I personally hope to see what you re thinking after all this..

  • Title: Madhouse of Ideas: @gemturfer
    Descriptive info: Gemma Tur Ferrer.. , a primary school teacher and teacher educator at the University of the Balearic Islands at Ibiza headquarters.. Twitter and Emotions.. Tweets are the echo of the happiness a person in a state of well-being feels.. Six months ago when I wrote for the Spanish edition of this superb project I thought that to twitter you have to be happy.. It may sound too basic and probably, it’s dangerous to claim something so general and so unique about every human being, but anyway I still like to believe it or I simply still think it is true in my case.. Now, when I’m trying to write on Twitter again I would like to have a look at the relationship between human emotions and Twitter describing my own Twitter experience.. Everybody could give a different reason for Twitter, but if we could go deeper into the reasons for tweeting, we would probably conclude than there is one that summarizes all of the rest and that it is above any of the rest, which is learning.. I usually tweet as a teacher, on education topics and network with other teachers.. Therefore, Twitters is, for teachers, the place we debate, share and very often, fortunately, joke.. The relationship is nearly mathematic, learning only happens when a person is happy.. Thus, tweeting is an act of happiness as long as we use Twitter for learning.. And I have lots of evidence from my own experience.. I have experienced the excitement of finding by chance on my timeline the link to the information I was thinking about and looking for at that time.. I have enjoyed sharing my own findings and receiving feedback from my Twitter friends.. And I have felt the anxiety of tweeting something I had written myself while looking forward for some feedback tweets, as may happen if I finally take part in this project with these lines I’m writing at the moment.. I have learned so  ...   is something I still have to learn, tweeting my reasons and my opinions with no fear of being right or wrong.. In fact, we , as teachers, understand mistakes as the greatest opportunity for learning.. There are two feelings that I consider incompatible with Twitter although you may not agree with me, which are sadness and stress.. I can’t talk about the first one as there are no tweets in my sad times.. But I can indeed talk about stress as I am living one of the most stressful school years of recent times.. Feeling overwhelmed by a workload is the main feeling that is stopping me from tweeting.. Let’s face it: there are days when I think that I’ve got no time for Twitter and as soon as I realize it, I open it and tweet at least once as I feel ashamed of myself for that kind of thought.. From my Twitter experience I feel that Twitter is one of the most engaging tools there are nowadays for teachers to learn and get even more concerned about the education we need for this challenging century.. Therefore, I always strongly recommend all my students to try Twitter and give it the time needed to see how powerful it is for the future networked teachers that I would like them to become.. I hope they will be my twitter friends sooner or later and that one day they will write about their Twitter experience too.. In a passionate discussion on Twitter of.. @jsalinasi.. in Bilbao, on our way from the café to the Edutec venue with.. too, the first said, meaning me:.. “Look at her: she is a Twitter product”.. and we all laughed about the expression.. But he was right… I am living a new passion for learning and teaching due to the learning I’ve received on Twitter lately.. So, hopefully, I hope we all keep tweeting for the rest of our lives, at least!.. By @gemturfer..
