Using Twitter to share update with students and parents

In Social Media on September 7, 2012 at 9:19 am

How Twitter can be a powerful educational tool.

Think Twitter is just a waste of time? Think again. Its organizational structure makes it an effective tool for connecting with students and others online.

You can set up a Twitter account and name it @MRKHALAFCLASS and share it with your student’s parent as a way to keep them update with your class. At the end of the year, you can remind them that they can remove the “follow” @MRKHALAFCLASS as their student will go to the different class.

I believe the educators should be a powerful role models and provide an examples of how to use the most powerful social media tools to expand the boundaries of learning.
