Sharing More Than 140 Characters on Twitter - NY Times

Sharing More Than 140 Characters on Twitter - NY Times | Internet Tools for Language Learning | Scoop.it
Q. How do you take screen shots of articles and then post them on Twitter, with sections highlighted and the URL of the article included?

A. Annotating screen shots of text passages — and then posting the image and a link to the article on Twitter — is an effective way to make a point with the selected text. It also lets you get around the service’s 140-character limit. You can mark up the screen shot’s text in a few different ways on a mobile device or computer.

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

TWITTER TRANSFORMS EDUCATORS


Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.

 

Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.
