I've gone right off paper.li since I started using scoop.it - it's just too crude - more noise than signal.

Can you really use Twitter in your Classroom?

Can you really use Twitter in your Classroom? | IT tips for teachers | Scoop.it

Twitter was one of those things that I just ignored. I thought it was a little bit indulgent and frivolous, that was until I got shown how teachers are using it for Professional Development. It is interesting how often it is now my first port of call if I am looking for a new Web 2 tool or an App that does a specific task. So how can you use twitter in the classroom?
