Twitter in Education: how do you use it?

On Wednesday, ISM are running a morning of CPD for all our staff in a selection of web-tools and apps that many of our teachers have successfully used over the last few years, both within and outside the confines of our classrooms. There will be seven different display areas with teachers milling between them at their leisure getting a demonstration of the potential of ICT in education and become aware, not only that these great tools exist, but of the variety of imaginative and creative ways they are already being used.

The selection of webtools are:

  • WordPress
  • Twitter
  • Show Me
  • Popplet
  • Story Bird
  • Glogster
  • Photopeach
  • Audioboo
  • Voicethread

I will be attempting to explain the huge potential twitter has for teachers, for students and for education as a whole- this is where I need some help, could you spare 2 minutes to quickly explain how you have used twitter and it has impacted upon your pedagogy. I will use your responses as part of my demo! Huge thanks in advance…

  1. I use twitter for class trips! It’s great to keep parents, class members etc up to date with activities and also provides a ready fto use timeline for reflections upon return.

  2. I have been using twitter as a tool to connect with educators worldwide, share ideas, resources and learning and develop my own personal PD. It has been a fantastic tool to learn to use and I can now see the potential for use in classroom learning as well as a variety of ways in which it could be used in the school community.
