I am interested to know how different classrooms use Twitter in the classroom. Specifically on the Elementary level, how are the twitter conversations managed? In what scenarios and contexts is Twitter used in the classroom?
Great question Tiffany! I, too, am interesting in learning more about Twitter as a teaching tool. I will definitely be following this post to find ways to incorporate it into the classroom.
One of the problems I face in my school, however, is our District firewall. Twitter (and all social media for that matter) is blocked! I would also be interested in Twitter"like" applications that would allow students to collaborate via technology while at school. I teach in a low income school district and many of the students in my class do not have access to computers or the internet at home so using Twitter outside of the classroom won't work either.
Looking forward to getting some feedback on this topic!
