I didn’t see anyone posting yet, so I thought I would start the discussion myself and invite others to join in to this post, if you want (i.e. go ahead and edit it, or respond).
I have a few things I would love to discuss, but as this is my first THATcamp, I am not sure exactly how specific I should be . . . so, I’ll just jump in!
IDEAS . . .
Using Social Media in the Classroom
I use Facebook and Twitter to interact with my students, mostly just as a communication tool . . . but I have also begun to use Facebook as a tool for classroom “group presentations.” How have others used FaceBook, Twitter, and MySpace in the classroom?
What Happened to “Humanities” in Digital Humanities?
I don’t know about you, but when I try to look into the field of “Digital Humanities” I find it mostly populated with computer geeks who seem to have learned programming in utero. I’m an English professor, not a programmer! How can we make this field more accessible to people who love technology as an end-user, not as a developer?
Using ePortfolios in the Classroom
This is probably passé for many participants at THATcamp, but my program uses WordPress blogs as ePortfolios for our students (and for class websites). I would love to share my experience doing this, and hear some great new ideas for ePortfolios.
