Students’ use of Twitter in a social media seminar

Here is my presentation from the elearning update conference at Emperor’s Palace in Johannesburg on 1 August and Emerge Africa in July.

If you would like a copy of the presentation, click here. I am also working on a paper which you can download here. I would appreciate any comments or advice, as I am a bit thin on the literature and theoretical framework. At today’s conference proceedings, presenters mentioned ‘communities of inquiry’ and I also like Ito’s notion of genres of participation. I will also add a podcast of the presentation soon:)
