Session Type: Experience IT
This special "Experience IT" session is designed to offer a hands-on, highly interactive introduction to an emerging tool and explore its potential impact for professional development and the classroom. Please bring your iPad, laptop, or mobile device to the session so you can engage with the presenter. Seating will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. A full battery charge is recommended for your device.

Twitter and other backchannels provide a free-form communication service to exchange information and network with peers. Campuses are using Twitter to promote events and share late-breaking news; faculty are using Twitter to increase student engagement; others use it for microblogging and communicating with their professional networks, including this EDUCAUSE 2011 MARC conference. This session will offer an opportunity to delve deeper into innovative uses of this online application.
