Social Learning with Twitter 101

I was recently contacted regarding how to use Twitter for social learning.

Here are my recommendations:

I would send out my invite informing participants of the event time and be sure to request the twitter handle for each participant within your invite.

Invites can be sent using MS Outlook Calendar invite or you could use a cool timer feature.

For example:  This is an event countdown timer:

How to create private twitter chat rooms:

  • Click messages, Click new messages, then enter all the handles for your participants.

Or for more information on creating private Twitter Chat Groups:

Interactive Discussion Methods could include: 

  • Shared search – tell the group to search for information and return back with a link, Share questions – ask a question and have participants provide feedback.
  • Share Group Discussions – create different chat rooms for different groups and have them return and report back to the main group results of a discussion.

Good luck,
