Some of my followers on twitter might have noticed that I’ve been a little noisier recently. Not only am I tweeting more often, I am tweeting about a wider variety of topics. It is only recently that I have begun to tweet about the multiverse, or concussions or the Qing Dynasty. Those who have followed me for a while might have been expecting this-it’s March/April and that means its student blogging time. Below is a list of student bloggers and their topics. We are all hoping that people from beyond our classroom will engage us in public discourse. Just by selecting 1 or 2 students, you can enrich the experience for all of them. There are 3 ways you can help:
1) Follow a student below on twitter and engage them there. Answer their questions, point them to resources, challenge their thinking, suggest others to follow that share their interest. Show them the power of twitter beyond retweeting a request “to show the power of twitter” or “how far a tweet can go”
2) Read their blogs and leave a comment. Answer their questions, challenge their thinking or assumptions, encourage or suggest further reading sources.
3) The easiest way to help is to retweet their tweets that I share. You can at least do that…generate a little noise to help a student reach a larger or more receptive audience than I can.
Join in a discussion- teach and learn- the noise will only last a little while…ride it out.
