To start please follow me on twitter @esum24. I was always curious about twitter before I took this class. A few of my friends had it and always tried to get me to sign up. I never did because I was never really new what twitter was or did. So I signed up for it. Now that I've signed up for it and use it I understand while people like it so much. It makes finding information on things that interest you extremely quick. You can also get peoples input on things that you may tweet quickly as well.
I'm so glad that I started using twitter. By following other special education teachers, education websites and journals I am now able to get ideas for school all the time. I've already found a website that heatherie73 tweeted earlier in the week. It was the do nothing for 2 minutes website. I really liked this and will be using it within the next few weeks. I think this is an extremely useful website for any teacher who has students that are getting ready to start MAP testing. Those students get extremely stressed at all the testing things that we throw at them daily. I think something like that website can help get our students to be less stressed.
The book gave me lots of good ideas on how to integrate twitter in the classroom. I like how Solomon and Schrum say how we can use twitter as a tool to help remind students about homework, and field trips. One advantage of doing this is that students or teachers do not have to supply their phone numbers. I am so happy that I have read more about twitter and am now using it. I never saw how twitter could be used as such a good teaching and informative tool. I look forward on continuing my tweeting!
