3 TWITTER Ways to Use Twitter in the Classroom By Carol S. Holzberg S. Holzberg Monday, June 20th, 2011 Here are some ideas to try using a class Twitter account you set up for student use. e-Pals: Have students in one class communicate with electronic pen pals in another class. Rolling stories: Students add a 140-character sentence or two to a continuing story for a designated period of time through tweets. If the project involves peers from classes in other schools or countries, it can broaden sociocultural and geopolitical awareness. Summaries: Students read an article, listen to a podcast, attend a presentation, watch a movie, or go on a class outing, then tweet a sentence or two summarizing highlights or important points. “Time Tweet”: Students choose a famous historical person (e.g., Louis XIV, Tutankhamun, Sir Isaac Newton, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Carrie Chapman Catt, Madame Curie), create a twitter account for that historical figure and, while role-playing, post tweets that remain true to the cultural context and vocabulary of the time period (Wheeler, 2009). Alternatively, instead of being a person, students could be an animal, insect, plant, flower, and so on. Foreign language practice: Create a dedicated twitter account to send tweets in the foreign language of study (Net Savoir, 2009). photo © 2009 Eduardo Otubo | more info (via: Wylio)Eduardo Otubomore info Wylio Share a website link: Tweet the URL with a brief one-line description of the site. Twitter uses TinyURL to shorten the link so that it doesn’t take up too many of the 140 characters. Have two opponents engage in a debate: Focus on issues such as American Independence (1776), capital punishment, abolition of slavery (1865), voting rights, national health care, and so on. You could set up a new twitter account with the name of the topic (Barrett, n.d.). Word of the day: Send out a word with a brief definition and have students use it in a sentence that they send back in a tweet. Brainstorm ideas: Tweets appear in real time as students post them, so you could have a class discussion and keep a record of what was suggested without anyone taking notes. Follow the news: News sources such as CNN (cnnbrk), New York Times (nytimes, nytlite, nytimesphoto), CBS News (CBSNews), and FOX News (foxnews, foxnewsbrk) have Twitter accounts for up-to-the-minute news. Other news agencies have Twitter accounts as well. If you follow their tweets, you could start each day with a brief discussion of a late-breaking story to keep students current about what is happening in the world on that day.cnnbrknytimesnytlitenytimesphotoCBSNewsfoxnewsfoxnewsbrk Follow these Twitter accounts: pbsteachers (resources for teachers), pbskids, NASA, PBSNature, NATGEOSOCIETY (National Geographic Society). Each one posts interesting news and content-related facts.pbsteacherspbskidsNASAPBSNatureNATGEOSOCIETY Make Twitter more useful: A number of applications are available to give Twitter more features, such as: Twirl – Twitterrific ­­– http://twitterrific.com Twitter Search – with its own list of Search operators Explore these add-ons to enhance your Twitter experience.

4 WIKI group of people to collaboratively A wiki is a web site that lets any visitor become a participant: you can create or edit the actual site contents without any special technical knowledge or tools. All you need is a computer with an Internet connection. A wiki is continuously “under revision.” It is a living collaboration whose purpose is the sharing of the creative process and product by many. One famous example is Wiki-pedia, an online encyclopedia with no “authors” but millions of contributors and editors. The word "wiki" comes from Hawaiian language, meaning "quick" or "fast." Wikis are used in the “real world” (outside of K-12 schools) by people collaborating on projects or trying to share things online, such as family information and photos, technical information from users of a product, data from a research and development project, wine expertise, travel journals from abroad, club or specialty information, or projects like collaborative cookbooks. Sometimes they are used for free expression, such as a youth group online graffiti space. College and university courses seem to be using wikis far more than the K-12 community right now. In K-12 education, wikis are being used by educators to conduct or follow-up after professional development workshops or as a communication tool with parents. The greatest potential, however, lies in student participation in the ongoing creation and evolution of the wiki. A blog, or web log, shares writing and multimedia content in the form of “posts” (starting point entries) and “comments” (responses to the posts). While commenting, and even posting, are open to the members of the blog or the general public, no one is able to change a comment or post made by another. The usual format is post- comment-comment-comment, and so on. For this reason, blogs are often the vehicle of choice to express individual opinions. A wiki has a far more open structure and allows others to change what one person has written. This openness may trump individual opinion with group consensus. - for group projects
