#17 Twitter

In the Introduction, you created a Twitter account and followed some technology leaders.  Using the Twitter search option, find ideas for using Twitter in the classroom.  In your blog, describe a Twitter activity you would like to do in a classroom. How do you think the activity could impact student learning and/or engagement?

I found a lesson on how to set up parent communication via twitter.  I think that is great because its convenient for the parent and gives the teacher instant documentation. If used in the right manner, Twitter could be a great tool.
Some other examples:
Use for students who miss work
Use 'after hours' for any questions
Use as a morning meeting
Use as way to help prevent blurt outs
