My first attempt to tweet while in class was interesting to say the least. It was quite difficult to stay engaged while trying to come up with a tweet that would be coherent. I found that I could not think fully thought the statements that others where making. I think that is does sure to ask questions to be discussed at a later time. This is a great way to continue class discussions. I think it could be a useful took to include others in the fold, also it is a helpful way to keep notes. the majority if my tweets where questions that I had or that were asked by others. I think it would be more interesting if others were also live tweeting, but it may take peoples attention out of the class all together. I'm wondering what would happen if the live feed was kept on the screen in the front of the class, it may be a way to structure class discussion. Someone who does not speak much may find their voice this way.
Does tweeting challenge that normative structure of the class room? Sure it does but the space is still privileged as well as the knowledge. Who is able to participate in 140 characters. I wonder if ideas can be fully transmitted.
