Why would you want a twitter book group?

A Twitter book group is forming to look at how such a thing would work.

Why would this be advantageous? I think:

  • Being able to effectively synopsis your thoughts in 140 characters requires higher order thinking
  • It is is more inclusive of those with lower bandwidth capabilities or do not have computers (they can use cell phones)
  • Contributions can be made “on the go” (via cell phone)
  • It would potentially allow a greater number of people to participate

  1. I was part of the conversation last night that resulted in @digitalmaverick creating the twitter bookgroup. The edtech community has been struggling with ways to use twitter meaningfully in the classroom (upper level, of course), and I think this is a perfect example of how it could be done. Stay tuned to http://googtweetblog.edublogs.org for my post on this 🙂 It’ll be so fascinating to see this group explode, it’s been a huge hit already.
