Planting the First Seed
In the Spring of my junior year I took EDUC 351 and DGST 101, both of which highly encouraged the use of Twitter. From there, my familiarity with the tool started and I began to look at it more than what I originally thought it was: a useless tool.
Spreading out Roots
From there I began to use the tool in several other facets. I used it to track the progress of projects, to ask professors questions and just generally and publicly comment on the content. The hashtags provided an easy way to catalog them all. My current hashtags include #indt501 for my Instructional Technology course and #romadrama for my independent study on Roman Drama.
