New study examines the impact of course-related texts and tweets on student recall.  Students who tweet or message about anything associated with an academic lesson could demonstrate greater recall and learn more from lectures. The finding is part of a new study, Texting and Tweeting in the Classroom: How Do They Impact Student Learning?, appears in the National Communication Association’s journal, and analyzes how different social media messaging, including tweets, impacts how much students retain what they learn during lectures.
