  • Mmmm. Breakfast. (@ Social Learning Summit (#SLS11)) http://4sq.com/egk4mW #
  • Hanging out waiting for the #gov20 session to start at #sls11 – big panel. #
  • @annatauzin Yup. First session of the morning and a heavy topic. #sls11 #
  • @harej Indeed, you wouldn't know it, but there is a war going on for your Wikipedia page. #sls11 #
  • So much competition and drive to get it first that verification is difficult to do, but essential. #sls11 #gov20 #
  • @ptklein Truly, the question I ask every morning. #
  • "Not just watch you, but interact with you" – How video events should work #sls11 #gov20 #
  • I wonder if the DOT could figure out some sort of national version of SeeClickFix #sls11 #gov20 #
  • There are a lot of people out there trying a lot of different things. #sls11 #
  • 'They are afraid that if they ask a question everyone may actually answer. It takes a lot of manpower to process that." #sls11 #gov20 #
  • @harej Perhaps building a layer that can display some of their data effectively then? #sls11 #
  • It is now "post and update journalism instead of research and verify" so stories need to be monitored continually. #sls11 #gov20 #
  • Concur. RT @harej: Comcast may be on the cutting edge of Twitter customer service but they are still the spawn of Satan. #sls11 #gov20 #
  • "Email is the equivalent of writing on a paper bag [in terms of accuracy.]" #sls11 #gov20 #
  • Apparently the DOT is required to answer every comment they receive. That's got to be interesting. #sls11 Administrative Procedure Act. #

  • 'New media is a gathering point for highly specialized groups" #sls11 #
  • @digiphile Do you think majority? #sls11 #
  • @digiphile That's what @dsmorgan77 said. I have to imagine they have some local application though. #sls11 #
  • "Design doesn't work by committee." #sls11 #
  • Transparency and engagement are vital #sls11 #
  • "The public has ADD." says @DSmorgan77 #sls11 #
  • @harej But it is always fun to see the ones that are #sls11 #
  • @digiphile Heh, he just mentioned the bridge data as an example of an underused dataset. #sls11 #
  • @digiphile Indeed. Difficult to lock down numbers. Different groups (bloggers) have different priorities on verification, do you agree? #
  • @akeyak I believe that one was from @wmburke #
  • Some good-natured partisanship in the #gov20 panel at #sls11 #
  • @digiphile Not going to try to argue definition of journalist in 140. ๐Ÿ˜› I mean those not working for/owned by MSM. #
  • 'The government has a responsibility to provide access to data to citizens, also to make it machine readable' says @wmburke #sls11 #
  • @amberleyjohanna @CatyBC Oooh. @samplereality has some great articles on @profhacker about that. #sls11 #
  • @DistrictOfAris :/ IMO online privacy is an oxymoron #sls11 #
  • #sls11 crashed HootSuite on my Droid. ๐Ÿ˜› #
  • I'm amused, @rorycooper, as the sole Republican, is leading the #gov20 panel #sls11 #
  • "Public was citing expert studies that the government was not aware of" says @DSmorgan77. #
  • @harej Hey, I'm on the other side and I don't mind. ๐Ÿ™‚ #sls11 #
  • Concur! RT @annatauzin: Thanks to everyone on the #gov20 panel. Y'all were great! #sls11 #
  • Email newsletters with content from multiple platforms. Nifty idea #sls11 #
  • .@talon asks 'how do you know when students are distracted?' #sls11 #
  • 'Online and distance learning is not for everyone.' #sls11 #classroom #
  • @JoshuaBauder @talan I would think it is very important in both. #sls11 #
  • @claritzajimenez Do you disagree? Personally I'm still not sure how to define the term. #sls11 #
  • The Archivist, Twapperkeeper, and FeedWordPress are all useful ways to archive Twitter interactions with students. #sls11 #classroom #
  • @AU_SMCEDU Idea: Ship out a Michael you know works to remote contributors. #sls11 #
  • @AU_SMCEDU Err stupid auto correct, I mean mic. #sls11 #
  • Is Facebook not the place for learning? #sls11 #classroom #
  • Ugh, Blackboard. #sls11 #classroom #
  • @TechChange I mean technically they can and sometimes they do. Does it always work? No. But sometimes it does. #sls11 #
  • @loebben @pdkdc I think Facebook is too locked in for that, at least for now. #sls11 #
  • @pdkdc LinkedIn groups are always a good idea IMO. #sls11 #classroom #
  • Twitter can be used for adding depth to a conversation. Should be used that way. #sls11 #classroom #
  • @daryncambridge #sls11 Hasn't stopped the rise of online universities. #
  • @dsearls I have a bunch of links by GMU profs and ones that they use. I'll pull up links when back on computer. #sls11 #
  • @ranachronism @alexpriest I'm a big fan of visibletweets. #sls11 #
  • It's a race, which will finish first, the panel or my phone battery? #sls11 #
  • @ranachronism Yet it seems that some people don't get it. #sls11 #
  • @ranachronism Yeah sounds like it is worth hunting down. #sls11 #
  • @TechChange Very much concur. Closed systems freak me out. #sls11 #classroom #
  • @ranachronism As more than a Blackboard alternative? #sls11 #classroom #
  • Yay! ๐Ÿ™‚ RT @TechChange: Really love the model at George Mason with student faculty supported wordpress sites @chronotope #classroom #sls11 #
  • Ugh Klout. #sls11 #classroom #
  • @TechChange Definitely, they are very nifty. #sls11 #
  • @ranachronism Just a leaderboard for social media use may be a good way to start. #sls11 #classroom #
  • @ranachronism Very true. I'm a fan of any decent alternative to Blackboard. #sls11 #classroom #
  • @WriterChanelle There is a great MIT site that allows students to make their own games for learning. Don't remember the link. #sls11 #
  • @TechChange Or the privacy paranoid administrators. We need a site with a solid argument that others can refer to and use. #
  • @ranachronism YES! If anyone wants help rebelling from Blackboard to WordPress I'd be glad to help for free. #sls11 #classroom #
  • @dctechspace I need a site that tweets me to remind me to drink the milk. #sls11 ๐Ÿ˜› #
  • What to remember for social media in the #classroom – It's not the tool but the methodology. #sls11 #
  • Can't wait for the mobile panel. I'm on it and I hope some of this crowd comes along. It should be a great conversation. #sls11 #classroom #
  • @monarchslager Nifty, what do you do with UPI? I used to work for their UPIU #
  • @JoshuaBauder Interact and react to it IMO. #sls11 #appedu #
  • @daryncambridge I think it's about reaching people where they are. We gotta do whatever we can to do that. #
  • @ranachronism I believe it is that they are not supposed to give out your email via CC or anything else. They have your email already #sls11 #
  • Yes, please look it up because I only know it through others. RT @JPedde: FERPA Information: http://1.usa.gov/bEmZn2 #sls11 #appedu #
  • Yes, me too please. RT @TechChange: just put the computer chip in my arm/neck already! #sls11 #appedu #
  • Want to play with onmason.com? Send me a tweet #sls11 #appedu #
  • @ranachronism Fingers crossed. I hope that cheap web-ready devices will multiply in the future. #sls11 #
  • Apparently Verizon doesn't get a signal down here, or at least my Droid doesn't. #sls11 #
  • @ranachronism Yeah, I jumped on the wifi. #sls11 #
  • @JPedde Definitely. Thanks! #
  • @JoshuaBauder Timing tweets to best reach your audience and testing which appeals get the most clicks. #sls11 #
  • I didn't boo the lady from Blackboard, but I thought about it. I'm sure she's nice but I don't like BB at all. #sls11 #
  • @Talan @feldmaniac It's very Bill Gates. #sls11 #
  • @dctechspace @joshuabauder Yup, I've had that. #
  • @feldmaniac Only if they give me the secret spices. #sls11 #
  • RT @AU_SMCEDU: Our panelists Twitter handles: @immunity @reyjunco @gregcypes @districtjoe @ghderoy @andreajm @yongclee #SLS11 #whatsnext #
  • @Talan Archive your tweets somehow. #sls11 #
  • @Talan Twitterville is a great book about Twitter use and strategies. #sls11 #
  • @dctechspace Very true. #sls11 #
  • @dctechspace Very differently in different places? #sls11 #
  • Huh, Blackboard has leadership that's afraid to try new things? Not surprised. #sls11 #
  • @harej I'm pretty sure she had some problems with that too. #sls11 #
  • Apparently I'm going to kill 2 phone batteries today. I should have brought a third. #sls11 #
  • Agreed. RT @sammijoAK: .@yongclee is a fantastic panel discussion moderator. Looks easy, but it's a tough job. Kudos! #sls11 #
  • @ranachronism Only if they let me fire everyone, but apparently you can't do that. #sls11 #
  • Ok, we found a Sprint user. I believe they are the only ones who can use the BB mobile app. >.< #sls11 #
  • @MissMeganEmily I thought that too. #
  • Heh. RT @reyjunco: @JoshuaBauder I always keep it real (tenure rules) #sls11 #
  • @transportgooru @suchthekaitlin lol, now we're all on the watch list I guess. #sls11 #
  • Indeed. RT @JoshuaBauder: a lot of people want to learn how social media works…. Then why don't they start using it? #SLS11 #
  • "When you choose to stop learning you're done." #sls11 #
  • Not going to make the obvious joke about iPads and BB. #sls11 #
  • @ranachronism Someone should do one for present history in Middle East. #sls11 #
  • I really hope the iPad isn't the future of education. Do not like. It's such a closed system. #sls11 #
  • @suchthekaitlin Look up 'tellable moments' adds a whole layer for how to think about Oregon Trail. #sls11 #
  • Just realized I'm sitting alone in the front two rows. #sls11 #
  • Firefox is meh IMO. Such a huge memory hole. #sls11 #
  • @JoshuaBauder I haven't used paper in years. #sls11 #
  • Gah. Klout again. #sls11 #
  • @ranachronism @GregCypes Pro: people use Klout. Con: Its metrics are barely tied to the reality of what they are measuring. #sls11 #
  • @JillianBRogers Interesting. #
  • You gotta get the power #sls11 #
  • @gsaperstein Really? What device? Wouldn't work on my Android unless it had Sprint. #
  • Hey @transportgooru @JoshuaBauder @ashlyenglish @ranachronism Glad you want to try onmason! I need your e-mails, send to azuckers@gmu.edu #
