Next Week's Twitter Chat
03/10 - Humanities in Higher Education
Today’s undergraduates are the first generation raised on the internet and social media. Connected from early childhood to vast streams of information and entertainment, they flit freely among them and expect their technologies — mobile and omnipresent — to answer every question. In light of the rapid technological advances and the changing economy, will the humanities survive the 21st century? Will the humanities and should the humanities have a place in the standard higher-education curriculum?
About the #StuVoice Twitter Chats
Students launched the #StuVoice chat in May of 2012 with the hope of providing a new platform for youth advocacy – one for students, by students. The chats have helped to cultivate an understanding of the importance of student voice with the involvement of presidential candidates, journalists, educators, parents, the US Secretary of Education, and most importantly, students. The chats have also inspired the growth of the movement beyond the Twitter-sphere, in addition to the formation of other youth-led Twitter chats. Twitter chats are an excellent way for students to discuss policy issues and connect with other students from around the world.
