After a few days of experiencing twitter and its resources, such as tweet deck, within the classroom. It has helped me see that online tools, social networking, and many other forms of technology can be beneficial in the classroom. I found that using twitter to communicate gave us to collaboratively share information, such as our chapter two twitter quiz, was beneficial to all who participated to see different views of the questions.
This may seem odd, a quiz on twitter, and it was odd to me at first as well. But once we started going, the whole class had many opinions and different views on the questions that were asked. We were able to collaboratively work from a network of answers and place them into our small group response.
Twitter can aid in many classrooms with conversations in school, as well as at home. With the access students have to twitter can allow them to pop in a conversation for questions, discussions on topics as well as obtaining events and important dates.
