Seeking to increase student engagement, some instructors are asking students to use micro-blogging tools to post questions and comments relevant to course material. Although a medium gaining in popularity, the results of micro-blogging in the teaching and learning process are uncertain. To the best of our knowledge, no research has been devoted to looking at the cognition levels of micro-blogging in an educational setting. We have looked at students' micro-blogging behaviour. We used Bloom's Taxonomy of the Cognitive Domain (Anderson & Krathwohl 01) to classify the comments, questions, and answers posted by students and then we studied trends and patterns in the learning process. Our study provides initial insight on the effects of using micro-blogging technologies in a teaching and learning environment. Although preliminary, college and university instructors can benefit from looking at our results to help them decide if they might like to take up the micro-blogging challenge in their classes.
