Tweeting in Class
My Scholars are tweeting in our English Classes.
Twitter is a powerful teaching tool
Because I truly believe in the power of a Tweet, I have maintained my 2 accounts for my students even though I did not have much of a student following. I am 'connected' and see the importance of modeling ways to utilize and integrate technology in my classes so I have been tweeting for other teachers and the occasional student. Until today.....
Today, I offered extra credit for Tweets
Their initial assignment was to create PaperTweets
I gave them examples
She Tweeted about the action in Beowulf and she did a great job using hashtags to show stream of consciousness and action.
