Foreign language teachers, check out #20 on this list. It offers a couple of ways to use Twitter in language classrooms.

For me there was not a whole lot of new ideas in this article. However, for someone who is new to the concept digital literacies I think this article would be helpful in giving some very concrete ways to use this tool. I really love the idea of using it as grammar & vocab builder. It would be perfect for ESL students! It makes me miss my English classroom because I think there are a lot of powerful activities that could be done to check for understanding. For example, you could even have students tweet out their thesis statement & provide their peers with feedback-quickly!

Great ways to use Twitter in the classroom. I especially like the use of hastags for current events.  Having students write about current events is cross curricular which is always great.

Cuurently I'm usng the fourth approach in my classroom. The idea of extending our classroom. So far it has been the easiest for me. My course is digital photography so students can share their images and take more images. We can also engage in photographic analysis. I'm hoping to start some backchanneling when we are working more, but right now we are having issues with suspended accounts. I think the idea of research is potentially very powerful. I think i can integrate this into my final project where they create an original series inspired by another artist. ....Food for thought..

Using Facebook to Improve School Communication

Using Facebook to Improve School Communication | Social Networking in Classrooms | Scoop.it

"Facebook is a powerful tool for school administrators because its social networking structure can be used to facilitate communication and build a dynamic online community. Most parents and students have Facebook accounts, and they update them on a regular basis. This means school administrators have a powerful communication tool at their finger tips, one that can be used to share all kinds of information– blogs, event updates, photographs, and video. This information can easily be tailored to meet the personal needs of the school’s community."
