This will be my second lunch-time workshop (out of six) at Unirazak on Wednesday, 3 October, 2012! We will be rocking Twitter for learning this time around. Twitter is certainly my favorite tool to connect with amazing people around the world. Let's hope we can inspire a few more educators to use it both for self and student learning!

Did you know that over 500 million people around the world actively use Twitter today? Since its launch in 2006, Twitter has become one of the top 10 most visited websites on the Internet, and has been described as "the SMS of the Internet." In this workshop, we will explore Twitter, and how it can be used for learning, teaching and research. Twitter is also a great tool to engage students in the classroom, and during large lectures.
After this workshop, you will be able to:
- Use Twitter to facilitate learning and teaching.
- Create unique Twitter #hashtags for programmes, courses and events.
- Use Twitter apps to engage students in the classroom (and beyond).
