To Do or Not To Do? Twitter Inside the K12 Classroom
From time to time, I’ll get a really good question via my website contact form or our ESSDACK contact form and as I write out the response, I wonder if it would be something others would be interested in as well.
As a bit of an experiment, I’m going to share the email I received (minus the sender’s name) and my response. If you’d like to see more of my Q/A responses on topics ranging from PBL, to gifted students, to all sorts of tech tool integration (I get all types of questions), just give me a comment below and I’ll start doing that more regularly.
I have discovered that twitter has great science related tweets by
scientists, science news, and science centers. I’ve been thinking about ways
to share these tweets with my students. Do you have any suggestions about
using twitter with students, retweeting, etc? Thanks!
(sidenote: I know this teacher personally and know she’s a HS teacher in a tech-friendly school)
The hashtag helps to organize similarly-themed tweets and there are many of them related to education topics. For more information about what a hashtag is, how it’s used, and how to use them for an educational benefit, I’ve collected a few key articles for you (again, via my Diigo account).
