Twitter in the Classroom

Today's LWP Pre-Institute workshop example dealt with using Twitter as a part of writing instruction. An article in yesterday's New York Times entitled "Speaking Up in Class, Silently, Using Social Media" offers a look at how several classroom teachers use Twitter with their students in order to increase participation in class discussions, and the topic has been met with both positive feedback and concerns. The NYT Learning Network has provided a forum for commenting on social media in the classroom, which you can check out here.

What is your response to the article and the posted comments? Feel free to share your thoughts here.
