Today more than one billion people use Facebook, and more than 500 million use Twitter to connect, share and interact with one another.  In this workshop, we will explore how we can use Facebook and Twitter to facilitate learning and teaching

During the hands-on activities, we will learn how to create Facebook Groups to engage students and conduct assignments, and create unique Twitter #hashtags to empower dedicated streams for sharing and learning. Finally, we will explore several Twitter apps to engage students in the classroom and beyond.

Would have loved to attend the Twitter workshop. I'm pretty familiar with FB groups & pages but Twitter. Haven't explored it that much.

Read the slides. Very well done slides! Still don't get some of the extra Twitter functions.
Anyway, I'm in no hurry to learn. =)

Belum cuba, belum tahu! Once you have tried the Twitter functions, you will get it :) Twitter is my favorite tool to connect with awesome experts around the world & discover the future of learning :)

Thanks for your feedback, Amigo :)

Thanks for the great suggestions. HootSuite is also cool alternative to Tweetdeck (which is now owned by Twitter). Will add some of your suggestions if a next time (workshop). Hopefully, no more Facebook workshops, but Twitter ones are fine :) Focusing now on OER, MOOCs, iPad and Gamifying classroom learning. Thanks again for your good suggestions :) All the best, Bro!
