I am running a workshop today on using social media to engage students, particularly mathematical sciences undergraduates. I think this is an emerging area about which little is known. I’ve tried to think of some examples of what you might do with these technologies. What do you think of my list? I’d be pleased to hear suggestions for additions, or stories about when you’ve tried this and how it went, in the comments.
- Classroom engagement;
- Building a community;
- Doing/organising project work;
- Students posting content – Flickr or YouTube or whatever;
- Careers/job hunting;
- Making wider connections;
- Your own professional development.
