Edutech for Teachers

Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

Some Twitter Truth

March29

So, I saw this cartoon on the You Can’t Scare Me, I’m a Teacher Facebook page this morning and literally laughed out loud. And then there was the accompanying caption: I wish standards were 140 characters or less. How ’bout it!

Aside from the humor and sarcasm, there is some truth to what is being depicted. Yep, whether you agree with it or not, the digital natives in our classrooms are basically pleading with us to engage them in content with real world tools—including social media.

That said, check out my How to Use Twitter in 60 Seconds post to learn about the benefits of using this tool for educational purposes. Not only do I explain how Twitter can be a valuable classroom resource, but I also share information regarding how social media can become an invaluable professional learning network for all educators.
