21st Century Skills – Twitter in the Classroom

First published June 15, 2009

Kudos to Dr. Monica Rankin at the University of Texas for an outstanding implementation of Twitter in her history class of 90 students. She shares a critical insight when she said, “I just had to come to grips with the fact it was going to be messy.” Her goal was to create more opportunities for all students to participate in class discussions and interact about course content.

Anyone know any high school or middle school history teachers doing the same thing? Thanks to Darren Rowse at Twitip for sharing this wonderful application of Twitter in the classroom.
