This picture shows how social media has developed over the years. It mentions how many people thought that social media was started with facebook, when in reality it was really started by other projects that you can see above. This picture/concept shows the differences between which sites took off and which didn't, depending on our cultural preferences.

Usefu glossary for using the big 5 networking sites - also gives you some handy hints. Worth looking through - especially if you plan on using Twitter for professional development - I think it is the most valuable tool I have for connecting! I'm at @prendielearning :D

While no-one is likely to use all of these, most of us would find something appealing in this.

This tweet provides interesting ways to bring the 21st century into the classroom, and presents some good ideas on how to get the children more engaged and involved in class.

I have to say that I never really saw how Twitter could be useful in schools. I thought that it was just a way for people to express their immediate feelings and thoughts, and to see what celebrities are doing. I never thought that Twitter could be applied in the classroom in so many different ways! Using Twitter as a bulletin board is a great way to reach children. I didn't even realize that the University of Maryland and many universities utilize Twitter for this purpose. For example, when there severe weather and there is a school delay or closing, President Wallace Loh tweets to the UMD community letting them know whether or not classes are cancelled. Twitter can also be used to send out mini quizzes to students which they can answer for bonus points. Honestly, I never thought that students and teachers could communicate through Twitter in all of these ways! Truly brilliant! The tweet also describes how Twitter hash-tags can be used for organizing information in the classroom. By creating a classroom hash-tag, students can see other classmates' thoughts on class and teachers can look for questions students have. I think using the hash tag can be very beneficial because it's a space where everything can be piled together connected by a single hash-tag. However, it can be a disorganized pile if there is not structure and directions on what the hash-tag should be used for. I think if students are given a guideline on what the teacher is looking for in on the hash-tag (questions, thoughts on today's readings), then the classroom will profit from having a classroom hash-tag. There are so many more amazing ways Twitter can be used in school! This tweet really opened my eyes to the academic ways of using Twitter. I have become more accepting to having forms of social media in the classroom after reading this tweet. I think it is all about the way you use technology in the classroom. If you use it properly, it can change the way we teach and truly bring education into the 21st century.
