Great ideas for  the use of social media in meaningful ways. Highlights the need to be critical and shows how social media can be used for different purposes. 

Carmenne K. Thapliyal's curator insight, March 26, 2013 7:03 AM

Very, very interesting and controlled !! 

khodge55's curator insight, April 28, 2013 11:21 AM

Though I do not have a Twitter, I find this very interesting.  I think that if teachers did end up using this the kids who do have a twitter would get more involved in the assignment, but I'm not sure what they'd do with the kids like me would do during this lesson.  Overall,  I think this is a really cool and unique idea that could probably done with other social networking sites aswell.
