Between the Chapters Twitter & social media
For this Between the Chapters, Laura welcomes Sue Beckingham and Chrissi Nerantzi to talk about all things related to Twitter and Social Media from Chapter 16. Reflecting back to our use of the mediums to be social and talk with educators, learners, researchers, and more — we see how these public, open spaces have changed and challenged us over the last 10+ years. Twitter has brought about community and connection through hashtags; however, it is not the same as it once was — or is it?
