Szymon Machajewski – Using Twitter in the Classroom
Szymon Machajewski, an Assistant Professor in the Computer Applications Department at GRCC, has recently blogged about how he uses twitter in the classroom. See his post here.
Instead of viewing mobile devices and social networking as distractions in his classes, Machajewski encourages students to develop their own Personal Learning Network by using Twitter to record notes, share relevant materials with classmates, and follow industry leaders. Additionally, Machajewski is helping to model professional use of social networking which is so important in our current environment. Machajewski writes, “social media, as any other tool, can be misused. Being an example to students on professional, responsible and effective use of Social Media is, in my opinion, a responsibility of faculty.”
