Sesson led by Jason Rhode, PhD, Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center, Northern Illinois University
Micro-blogging is a form of blogging that allows users to write brief text updates (usually less than 200 characters) and publish them, either to be viewed by anyone or by a restricted group, which can be chosen by the user. This hands-on session will introduce various micro-blogging tools, including Twitter, Jaiku, Tumblr, and Edmodo and discuss pedagogical possibilities of integrating these technologies in the learning environment.
