I love Twitter for education. You have instant access to information. Students can type in a question and have thousands of teachers and other students help them out. You can have a “buddy Twitter” class which is kind of like the 21st Century version of Pen Pals. Last year I always had a Tweeter of the Day who would post up live tweets from school events, and our classroom happenings. The students really looked forward to their day to Tweet and use the different devices.
I hope to keep on our Twitter path this year and try out some other activities with it. Here is a guide with 35 suggestions on using Twitter in the classroom!
