So Much More Than Selfies: Twitter for Publication and #OwnVoices Narratives

Victoria Shropshire and Sarah Tytler
Abstract—This paper discusses the advantages of using Twitter in the classroom as a digital creative writing medium and platform for publication of research and writing. We advocate for the inclusion of digital and social media in the classroom, allowing for a multimodal learning environment that increases student participation, boosts creativity, and encourages student engagement with material across disciplines. Finally, our research provides examples of best practices for educators and program directors looking to integrate Twitter into their curriculum.

Index Terms—Creative writing, digital tools, multimodal learning, student engagement, self-publication, Twitter.
