Our next Teaching and Learning Conversation (TLC) is on Tuesday 12th June at 12:00 – 13:00 (60 minutes) with Martin Hawksey, Chief Innovation, Community and Technology Officer, Association for Learning Technology.
This month's TLC is titled:
'Twitter in Education: Interactively exploring the conversation with TAGS and TAGSExplorer'.
This conversation will explore approaches to help learners and educators gain more insight and a feeling of place within hashtag communities. As part of this we will look at TAGS and TAGSExplorer tools () which have been developed with educators and learners in mind to help support the collection, analysis and exploration of Twitter hashtag communities. These free tools provide a means to collect data from Twitter searches and analysis the results either in Google Sheets, where the data is collected, or visualized in the companion TAGSExplorer web interface. As part of this conversation we will touch upon the limitation of data collection from Twitter and issues around data protection and privacy. We will also provide some examples of where TAGS/TAGSExplorer has been used within an educational context.
Full details of this TLC are available on the TLC website
