Professor Boutros suggested in class that next year she was going to have students twitter throughout class. I think thats pretty cool...think about it. Students will get to communicate online and offline with the same people in the same proximity. Not only will this portray citizen and participatory media, students will also have to multi-task which is a big part of innovative technologies today. I think you could also make students purchase webcams as well so that they can vlog during class lol. You could have an array of networking technologies going all at once. It could be the technological classroom of the future, really. There might even be a few hackers in the class who could demonstrate there hacking procedures for a presentation on hacktivism. All students could be required to be on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Blogger, and the next social networking site thats going tobe established by first semester next year...almost guaranteed. Talking may not even be necessary...it would make your job a lot easier Professor Boutros! Students will truly experience the depths of citizen media while in the classroom...chucklechucklechuckle.
