This project will illustrate reasons, ideas, examples of Twitter being used in the classroom and around the world. It will provide pros, cons, benefits, lessons on the subject. It will be in Wiki form and displayed on the internet and other Social Media sites (including my Twitter
) for others to see/enjoy/learn.
This project will show new ways to learn in the classroom via social networking that the whole world can use. It will show examples of classrooms who already use it and it will show ideas for possible future plans.
I will prove how Twitter can be an excellent and helpful tool within the classroom and for sharing current events around the world. Students can and will be able to use it in the classroom for fast information and resource sharing via Twitter.
