Web Connected Minds talk outline

Posted by reyjunco on May 6, 2012 in Presentations |

Today I’m giving a talk at the Web Connected Minds Conference about my research on social media, student engagement, and learning. I’ll be talking about my published research on how Facebook use is related to student engagement and student academic performance. I’ll also be talking about some of my published research on improving educational outcomes by using Twitter as part of college courses. The best part (in my opinion) will be the unpublished data I’ll discuss showing how Twitter can be used to help improve student persistence into the second year of college. Lastly, I’m discussing interviews with students from these studies and *gasp* making inferences based on qualitative data analyses.

    I would like to use this statement in my research about social media and education 
    ” When used in academically-meaningful ways, social media can be used to improve student educational outcomes:
    any suggestions on how to reference it?


  • I would recommend being more specific about what you mean when you say “educationally meaningful ways” as well as the specific educational outcomes. You can do this in follow-up sentences. As for references, I would recommend you read some of our work on using Twitter (found here: http://blog.reyjunco.com/publications)
