  • Terrific presentation. Twitter can benefit educators, as it can be self-directed learning / PD. I have found that scheduled Twitter chats are a great way to learn and share with other teachers across the world. A post about the benefits of participating in a Twitter chat is found below.

  • Twitter in education. Hmm… I guess I never really thought about using twitter because I am somewhat skeptical of using it. However, after viewing this slide show I realized that I could really use twitter to stay up to date with friends, family, and coworkers. I like the fact that you can respond in 140 characters and check on updates from friends. I think I will try to sign up with twitter. As an educator, twitter would be beneficial because then I could stay up to date with coworkers and see what they are doing. Twitter can really be effective and can be utilized by teachers in the classroom. I just have to watch what I post.
