Do you use Twitter? Do you know how to use it?
Title: Twitter in Higher and Adult Education, ab-initio
Speaker: Lourdes Hernández-Martín, Language Coordinator (Spanish projects and Arabic), London School of Economics.
Everyone knows about Twitter but how to use this online social networking service for academic purposes is another matter.
In this workshop, we will have the opportunity:
- to learn the basis of this tool such as how to create and manage a Twitter account, how to write tweets and to create hashtags, how to follow other Twitter users, how to follow events, etc.
- to reflect on Twitter styles and the creation of one´s identity using different Twitter accounts samples
- to analyze Twitter uses for teaching/learning languages
PLEASE, do not forget to bring a computer, a tablet or a smartphone.
Date: Friday, January 22at 17.30
Place: Instituto Cervantes, London
The workshop is also an excellent occasion to meet and share our current academic projects. The Committee will update participants on the latest developments in Encuentro ele-uk 2016.
