TRE 24 Reading, Writing and Twitter?
My Bennington MFA classmate Valerie Ellis and I attended a thought-provoking session on April 8, 2010, at The Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) national convention here in Denver. The title was “The Networked Poetry Classroom,” and one of the panelists was Michelle Taransky, who works full-time at the University of Pennsylvania‘s Kelly Writers House in Philadelphia.
Valerie and I the night before the conference had been discussing the use of technology in classrooms, so Michelle’s tales of streaming Twitter in her classroom gave us lots to consider.
