Twitter Essay: Environment and Technology

Your Specific Tasks:

The Discussion:
Form a discussion group of about 5 students(invite a staff member, too, if you want).
Start your discussion in Twitter (use a new/unique #hashtag and avoid spamming existing hashtags). One of you picks the discussion starter from any of the “Environment and Technology” prompts from my iblog. Post follow-up responses to each other so the discussion is “two-way”.

The Proof:

  1. Add a #hashtag widget to your blog of your discussion.
  2. Create a “Twitter essay” in your blog highlighting the main points in your discussion, try to embed a tweet or two from each contributing group member.

Demonstrate these “I can…” outcomes:
“I can … Explore your thoughts, ideas, understandings and ask your discussion group members to do the same.
“I can … Respect each others opinions, but work together towards building a discussion thread that is perceptive, insightful, engaging and unified.

Assessment:
Once each member of the group is satisfied that they have completed the discussion task, and met the more general “I can…” outcomes, assign your discussion thread a score using this “Personal response” rubric:

Use this rubric for scoring your “Twitter Essay”:
