How I Use It
All of my students got Twitter accounts and we used them in any number of activities - we would backchannel during videos, connect with experts during career units, share our learning publicly, and publish student work, to name a few.
Twitter is my number one tool - if I had to pick one tech tool if I'm ever stranded on a desert island, this is it! I love that it's open and widely used so we can connect with anyone across the globe! While some people are concerned about security, I feel that this is a place where educational value outweighs those concerns, and I truly believe that this is a great teaching opportunity to discuss digital citizenship and safety.
