In keeping with this week’s Twitter Mega-assignment, we’ll be reading up on the work of your peers from around the country. All of the links provided are to classes who’ve either just completed a Twitter scavenger hunt of their own, or who are about to embark on that selfsame journey in the near future.
The other participating schools are:
- Carrie Brown-Smith’s (who came up with this idea) University of Memphis class has already tweeted at #J4801
- Suzi Steffen’s University of Oregon class tweeting at #J361 (next week, probably Wednesday the 16th)
- Jeremy Littau’s Lehigh University class at #J198 (already tweeted on Monday the 7th)
- Jonathan Groves’ Drury University class #comm221 (tweeted on Tuesday the 8th in the evening)
- Hans Ibold’s Indiana University class. #IUSXSW (details TK)
There are three parts to this assignment (15 points in all):
- Retweet at least five posts from students at these other schools. They can be scavenger hunt items or something else relevant to the course. It is preferable that you add some of your own (brief) perspective where possible, so you’re adding to the conversation.
- Respond to at least five separate posts from students at these other schools. This is different than retweeting – you’ll need to make contact and open up an actual conversation.
- Post an overview of the Twitter experience – with specifics regarding the scavenger hunt and inter-school interaction – to your blog. Post a link to that post here, and share that post via Twitter with the #WVUblogJ tag.
All these things must be completed by noon, Monday, February 14 (Valentine’s Day!).
