Twitter im Business English-Unterricht

Bruce Spears berichtet, wie er Twitter an der Berlin Business School im Fach »Business English« eingesetzt hat: How We Twitter. Sein Fazit:

What made our use of Twitter interesting and a success, I believe, was both the intense sociability associated with it and the fact that for most it did not come easily and so had to be shown by example and use governed by intelligibility and acceptance among peers. It was almost a parallel universe, because we certainly could not talk about it in class, but by the end of the term the answer to the question of “what are you doing” was answered in your terms: you were answering and asking questions, offering and responding to expressions of mood or feeling, and offering and thanking for links and other resources: you “owned” your Twitter, as we say.
