Twitter Can Help Students Get Better Grades (But Only When Used Correctly) [Infographic] | AllTwitter

leave a comment »

[…] A new report has reiterated these findings, suggesting that integrating Twitter into a college class significantly raises student GPA and engagement. However, these benefits were only realised when certain conditions were met.

  1. The use of Twitter must be required (and not optional)
  2. Frameworks must be in place to make the use of Twitter structured
  3. Professors must participate

Failing to meet this criteria led to no difference in GPA or student engagement.
