For the past three semesters, I have engaged students at Temple University from the Department of Geography and Urban Studies to use and develop social media resources that reflect their understanding of core concepts and inquiry themes introduced in their courses. Learning activities related to the use of social media have been designed and to provide students with an opportunity reflect the understanding they have gained through using specific online tools to conduct descriptive analysis, apply what they have learned to specific cases and examples and to share data and original content they have developed.
During the coming weeks ITSpace will showcase many of the student works that have been developed through this approach. We will culminate the series with a Tweetup Event to mark Earth Day 2009, which falls on April 22. If you would like to participate in the Tweetup, please add your name to our invitation, located here.
