Mobile Multi-modal Learning Facilitated through Twitter - A Case Study of Twitter Phenomenology with Graduate Level Nurses

Elizabeth M. La Rue, Lauren Terhorst, Kathleen G. McCafferty

Abstract

Adapting academic course content to a mobile world continues to evolve as technology changes. A conceptual deployment of Twitter in a graduate level nursing informatics course is discussed along with how tweeting may fit learning styles, human working memory capacity and reduce the reliance on content management systems to facilitate an online course. Mechanisms for using Twitter to deliver course content and pollinate student interaction while maintaining private individual Twitter accounts for the faculty member and students are discussed.
