I’ve been using my twitter account a lot more recently. I now use it more for news than social interests. I’m still trying to think of a good way to use it in the classroom, versus personally or for a sports team. I’ve been following the boys basketball team for Lindbergh. Jason Wolfard does a great job at tweeting. He does just enough so you keep following but aren’t overwhelmed by inspirational quotes.
I also had a colleague (Pfeiffer!) show me a lesson where the student had to create a twitter feed for important people during that era in time. The students had to reference specific events and feelings of the Age of Absolutism. It turned out really well and I hope to use it in the future.
Props to Pfeif 🙂
