Twitter is a microblogging site that allows students to post comments or ideas of their own with up to 140 characters. This is a popular tool for educators as well as businesses to promote themselves in a condensed version. Twitter is a popular area in schools so that students can connect quickly and engage in small conversations with one another. Twitter allows students to reflect on ideas that a teacher may present and it is a journal for students to continuously update. Within this microblogging you will have to explain your goals of the assignment to the students so they do not get off task with Twitter being a social media outlet, but if used properly it can aid your students learning while having fun.
