I have decided to implement Twitter as a regular feature in one of my English classes this coming year. It’s still very much in the planning stages now, but I hope to have a full outline of my thought process, intended goals/objectives, and initial instructional implementation up here by the end of the weekend or early next week. Throughout the coming semester, I’ll post lessons & uses, successes & failures, my reflections, and student reactions. Of course, the safety and anonymity of my students are among my primary concerns here, so you’ll understand if I have to be vague and non-specific from time to time.
If you are interested in using Twitter as an educational tool, I hope you’ll stay tuned and contribute thoughts and questions to the mix as this project evolves. I’ll be tagging all relevant posts as “Twitteracy Project” for your ease in following.
