Blogs, Tweets, and Protests: Learning Movement Theory through Online Case Studies
Muñoz, José A.; Culton, Kenneth R.
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v28 n1 p119-124 2016
This article takes the practical inquiry model as an approach to designing a course on social movements that combines self-directed investigation and group discussion as an avenue for deep learning. For the purpose of developing a case study, a guided approach is provided that allows the students to explore theory on their own and make connections to the case material they discover online. In the process of developing the case study, students are required to journal about their experience and what they discover as they comb through their selected sites. The data can include several elements (e.g., blogs, chat rooms, Facebook, twitter, publications, photos, links to other groups, history, etc.).
