Jean Hébert

Posted on: December 9, 2010

On December 2nd, Jean Hébert came to my Social Media class to give us a presentation on Constructivism and how he used Twitter to interact with his students at Simon Fraser University.

I thought the whole idea of constructivism is pretty interesting and fascinating. How you generate knowledge from interaction between your experiences and ideas.  Jean talked about how he used Twitter to interact with a bunch of his students and have them come up with an assignment for him to do.

I frequently use Twitter and having a conversation with a few people is already pretty tough and overwhelming sometimes.  But he had roughly 60 of his students do that, so I can only imagine the difficulty they had.

Learning is all about trial and error and finding out how to accomplish things on your own.  Through Jean’s presentation, it gave me a different light to see things in.
