Starting out, total new frontier for me which seems very exciting. Have already started with Facebook and Twitter in class for the 1199 sections and they have loved it so far. Am still contemplating the useof blog’s in 1199 thinking it might be a bit of overkill or too early for a first year course, as facebook and twitter need considerable time management on mine and the student’s behalf, but will defnitely invite all to view and comment on my blog postings as soon as i can get some thoughts and writings together.
Thanks again to Andrea Niosi for introducing these exciting developments to the department at yesterday’s session, hope to start applying them one step at a time. I really liked the concept of Hootsuite, googledocs, googlereader, delicious, dropbox, bit.ly, goo.gl to name some. I liked the way how Andrea illustrated better time management of some of these applications through Hootsuite, as well as their integration.
I look forward to blogging.
Have a great weekend!
