Twitter can be an awesome tool for connecting, building your personal learning network, and DIY professional development. We even have a 13-page Twitter Handbook for Teachers that you can grab for free. But we’re always looking for new ideas of how to use Twitter in the classroom. We know that our readers are some of the smartest and most creative connected educators around. So we’re posing this question:
What is your favorite way to use Twitter with students?
- What activities have you tried that worked particularly well for you?
- Tell us a story about what you did, and why it worked.
Post a comment with your favorite way to use Twitter in the classroom. We’ll post the results here in a few days (giving you credit, of course), and may select your activity to publish in our updated Twitter handbook!
