How to Use Twitter: a Guide for Alumni Development, Communications and Admissions

  1. I would agree with you that the new media/old media stuff makes it tricky. I guess I just don’t understand how Twitter could necessarily be useful for schools themselves — although it’s certainly useful, as you point out, for individual teachers who are trying to share ideas and information.

    • Dear Ben,

      You’re of course entitled to your opinion, and I’m not entirely sure I don’t agree with you. I do think it’s been helpful in building an audience for this blog, and it’s been very helpful in my process of professional development and to the Commission on Professional Development. I was kind of amazed at how many people wanted to hear this talk, but the kinds of questions they asked showed they were trying to graft new media onto old-media structures.

      We’ll see if it survives.
