Focus on: Social Media


In my classes, we use social media in a range of targeted ways. Often, my classes share a social media account, be it Tumblr or Pinterest or another interface we’re experimenting with, which students curate individually or in group. Sometimes we work with these interfaces in class, and often we use them as tools to engage with one another and with media culture beyond class. We use the same account from semester to semester, and thus they become conversations between generations of a particular class.

We also use class hashtags to continue conversations on Twitter and on other social media that students happen to be engaged with. You can join in the Twitter conversations at #gsm267, #middspek, #middremix, #middsherlock, #middtvac, and #middami.
