#NoFailWhale: Tweet More, Drop Out Less
    Join Rey for an engaging, lively, beat-box-a-licious discussion about how the college classroom can be transformed into an engaging, collaborative learning community with the help of Twitter. Last year at SxSWi, Rey presented research to show that using Twitter can help increase student engagement and improve grades. This year, he’s back with fresh and compelling data to show that Twitter can not only be used to engage students, but improve understanding of course content and reduce the college dropout rate after the first year. Rey will summarize analyses of qualitative data describing how students interact on Twitter and what this means for the learning process; he’ll also provide quantitative data to explain how Twitter use affects acquisition of course content, engagement and persistence. In addition to presenting these results, Rey will discuss specific applications of Twitter technology higher education professionals can utilize to maximize educational good.
