Teaching with Twitter - This workshop is very much intended for new users of Twitter, or those who have been using it for a while and would like to explore some of the pedagogical uses to which this microblogging tool can be put. I will be joined by Dan Kennedy, one of my former students at the University of Plymouth, who has agreed to step in to replace my colleague Dr Tara Alexander, who unfortunately is unable to be at the conference due to family illness. The workshop will be interactive, and will require all participants to bring a wireless enabled laptop. Questions will be welcomed right through the workshop, and there will be ample time for discussion. I look forward to seeing you all there. Steve Wheeler Workshop leader
