Videos in the seminar

Last week we watched this nice video about procrastination. There is a nother video I’d like to share with you but there was’nt enough time to do during the session so I’ll do it here and now.
May be it can help us to understand why it is difficult to adopt twitter and blogs in education as well (see here and here), as these tools are still prette new, but dont take it tooo serious.

Engage the students


It is said that using new and fancy tools helps to attract the students and gets them to work more engaged in the class. Do you think engaging students could be enough as a reason to use twitter blogs, wikis and other stuff in school? How about students who would prefer the “traditional” way of classes?
