Here’s a storify chronicling the highlights from what was, hands down, the best assignment I ever gave as a college instructor. Students from three classes live-tweeted network coverage of the election to #12DC last night, and they seemed to love it. Will be writing more later today/tomorrow once I’ve met with the students who participated to get their take.
The #12DC Project: Live-Tweeting The Election
Students from my Online Journalism and Social Media & Journalism classes at Bridgewater State University covered shifts where they watched an assigned network and tweeted out news as it was reported. Some students in my Digital Media & Cybeculture class also volunteered help.
