Almost a year ago, I posted a call to collaborate with graphic designers interested in creating research-based infographics. If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that I’ve been fortunate to work with a number of graphic designers who have converted my research into infographics.
Here is yet another one in this series. This one is based on our paper, Putting Twitter to the test: assessing outcomes for student collaboration, engagement, and success. In the paper, we compared two ways to use Twitter in the classroom: as an unguided back channel or integrating it into a course in educationally-relevant ways (ways that made sense based on the course goals). The results gave us comparative data in order to be able to make recommendations about best practices in using Twitter in the classroom.
I’d like to point out that I’m a real stickler about using the term “best practices.” It’s a concept we toss around a lot in higher education. To me, a “best practice” is only something that has been supported by research. Alas, most of the time that we talk about “best practices” in higher ed, we’re focusing on what someone thinks is a “good idea.” So here you go… some data to support best practices in using Twitter in the college classroom.
