During this project, students will create a system that will monitor Twitter feeds, and compare one Twitter user with another.
This project will get students thinking ‘outside of the classroom’ and will give them an insight into how things ‘trend’ on social media. It will allow them to work with a multitude of topics from Sports and celebrities to news and current events.
During the project, students will:
Discuss the basics of Twitter, Hashtags (#) and Twitter IDs (@)
Determine the subject/s they wish to monitor (this can be anything from celebrities to football teams, fashion to news)
Peer review their results
Reflect on: strengths, weakness, difficulties and suggested modifications
Think of other ways this system can be used.
