Some people have talked about using Twitter during class–perhaps having people forward questions/feedback to a Twitter address monitored by, for example, a TA, who could represent the voice of the class.

There is already a pretty well-established body of practice and theory about backchannel communications (I think I first heard of it here).

I don’t know whether students Twittering their way through a 50-minute class is ideal, but “an iPhone in every pocket” might also let one rethink the purpose of those 50 minutes, making even bigger or introductory classes more seminar-esque.

So, is the idea for students to Twitter or whatever during class? This seems like it would lead to chaos without some intervention.

One assumes that Apple or AT&T would be giving the campus a large break on the cost of the iPhones because of all the new subscription revenue.
