So… the question is: What are my thoughts about Twitter?
Over the past few years I have had a Twitter account, but just recently decided to create a new professional one. I seemed to thoroughly enjoy Twitter over the past few years. I would follow who I wanted and read their stuff. However, I have never really tweeted myself or used hashtags so I am kind of still feeling new to this thing! I found the little hints helpful in ECMP 355 last night. Over the course of the semester I hope to build my twitter account and gain resources that will aid me in teaching. In my introductory post I did give you a link to my twitter page, however, here is my Twitter profile. Give me a follow if you haven’t already!
The next question is: What do I think about Twitter in the classroom?
I think that Twitter in the classroom would be a great thing. I have never really thought about using it in the classroom before because I never really knew how I would use it. However, I could see it being useful to create a class page in order to connect with other classrooms around the world using certain hashtags, like #elemchat for example. Connecting with other classrooms would enable us to share resources, gain resources, and showcase student learning. In addition, classrooms could keep in touch like never before. I think Twitter is the right resource to start using because it seems like more and more educators are choosing to use Twitter all the time.
To end off I want to ask you: What are your thoughts on Twitter or your thoughts about what I have shared in this post?
Comment below, I always like hearing others ideas!
