Using Twitter to Support (Grad Student) Scholarly Impact

Here is an example of how graduates students can use Twitter to support scholarly impact. Below is a weekly update from Twitter that highlights my most popular Tweets from the previous week. The Tweet that received 145 views in one week is a link to a paper (9 Ways Fear is Slowing the Integration of EdTech in Schools) MEd. student / EdTech Intern, Jason Ribeiro created for a class, and then revised for an online publication, www.FractusLearning.com


Encouraging students to share their work online provides them with opportunities to significantly increase the scholarly impact of their work, while connecting with the broader academic and educator community. Without the use of social media, it is unlikely that anyone, other than the instructor, would have even known that this paper existed.
