Integrating New Literacies in Higher Education: A Self-Study of the Use of Twitter in an Education Course
Nicholson, Julie; Galguera, Tomas
Teacher Education Quarterly, v40 n3 p7-26 Sum 2013
The objective of this self-study is to expand the emerging scholarship on meaningful integration and scaffolding of SNSs and the new literacies requisite for their effective use in higher education environments. As a teacher educator, the first author describes the successes and challenges she experienced introducing Twitter into her college classroom. By outlining students' diverse reactions and the range of discoveries they made in learning to use Twitter for professional purposes, this study highlights the potential benefits and complexities associated with successful integration of social networking and new literacies in higher education environments.
