Tweetle Dee

Today, Brett and I taught two New222 classes.  For a little something new, I decided to add a Twitter aspect to Brett’s (well-established) game of “Library Survivor.”  In the game, one of the challenges is for the students to take a funny picture of their favorite part of the library and show it to one of the instructors.  This time, I gave the students the option to tweet the photo instead to @gorgaslib with the hashtag #librarysurvivor.  I was interested to see if this would actually work and it did!  Well…kind of.  Not all of the students participated by tweeting, but a few did.  Only one tweeted directly @Gorgaslib, but the other groups tweeted with the #libsurvivor.  So, next time I’ll try to make it more clear that we want them to tweet directly at the library.  I would really like to emphasize this, too, because I think it will be a nice thing to add to our twitter presence and to gain some exposure/recognition for library instruction.
