Does (the Use of)Twitter Improve Education?

Does (the Use of)Twitter Improve Education? | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"There has been post after post acknowledging how educators love Twitter while also encouraging others to use it themselves. With that though comes skeptics (as there should be), questioning whether the use of Twitter is beneficial to educators. I have thought about that question a lot and I can give a definitive answer: yes and no ( I am 100% certain of this).

 

So to prove this, we have to look at a few things. First off, we have to look at how educators are using Twitter. Simply signing up for Twitter doesn’t improve anything in your classroom (similar to the notion that having a Twitter account will make people do inappropriate things and cyberbully). It all comes down to the use of it. I offer two scenarios in my own use of Twitter below."

This is a cool development, and proof that mobile is here to stay! If IKEA is going to be starting to include this technology in the near future, this should be an incentive for others to follow suit. I know that I'll be in line to get some of these for around my house, once they are available!

This is Brilliant, and proof that mobile is here to stay! If IKEA's furniture is going to be able to wirelessly charge your mobile device in the near future, maybe others will follow suit. I know I'll be first in line to get some of my own! -MobileMary http://AnotherBrilliantIdea.com

The best productivity methods keep your to-dos in front of you and prioritized so you never wonder what to work on next. Some are complicated, but others make it easy to see everything, organized by priority--so easy you could use Post-It notes if you wanted. Let's talk about one of those systems: Personal Kanban.
