Mining the tweetstream
Last night's inaugural educhat conversation on twitter prompted me to again think about how we might mine the tweetstream for information on teaching and learning. I collected all tweets tagged #educhat (thanks to the help of others, such as @aforgrave), and also did this recently for the tweets tagged #colearning from Colorado Learning 2.0. This morning while driving from place to place, I recorded some of my thoughts (via gcast) on mining and coding this data. I'd be very interested on your input and ideas- please listen and comment, email me, or contact me on twitter (@Bud_T).
I am an Assistant Professor of Science Education at the University of Colorado Denver and a former high school science teacher.
I was born and raised in Bloomington, IN and have lived in Centennial, WY, Sugar Land, TX, and now live in Louisville, CO. My loving and tolerant wife is from Melbourne, Australia. We have beautiful twin girls who are the joys of our life.
