Teaching Teens to Twitter: Supporting Engagement in the College Classroom
Rey Junco, Associate Professor and the Director of Disability Services in the Department of Academic Development and Counseling at Lock Haven University
Recent research has shown that social media use is correlated with indices of student engagement. While a relationship exists, no research has been conducted to elucidate the causal connection, if any, between engagement in social media spaces and engagement in the real world. This talk will outline an experimental study, currently underway, that assesses whether first-year college students’ use of Twitter affects student engagement and success.
