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

E Burgis's curator insight, March 19, 2014 9:01 PM
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!
