TWITTER GOES TO SCHOOL: Telling Stories through Digital Threads

Iste 2010 is off and running providing me another opportunity to share, with many onsite participants as well as those attending remotely, the power of using Twitter as a primary source for capturing and retelling global stories. This post will be the site where I maintain links and resources about this session. I have had the opportunity to tell this story several times and each time, I am touched by the response and how it reaches those who have attended in the past. In short, you will have the opportunity to hear the story of the elections in Iran as told by people across the globe through Twitter and other social media.

Session will be recorded and posted here soon
PURPOSE & OBJECTIVES

This session is designed to help participants move beyond the traditional uses of Twitter and introduce them to “digital stories told through digital threads”. The basic idea is that we are all living stories on the web and regularly leave behind digital footprints. This session looks at the first two weeks following the announcement of the Iranian election results and the role social media played in the telling of this story. People of the world told and retold the story as it unfolded through Twitter and linked it to many other social media tools. The session looks at how these different forms of media are connected and challenges people to consider the possibility that these are primary resources of the 21st century. How do you determine the veracity of this type of information? How do you attribute the source? What is true? What is propaganda? These and other questions are addressed through this presentation as we look at the story told through the social media and distributed through Twitter. Participants will be challenged to explore ways they can engage their students in capturing current stories through Twitter and other social media as a way of capturing history.
