    Hi
    I use Twitter to share ideas and stories. ( follow me if you wish! - search Tolo Taylor)
    I was wondering if anybody had used Twitter in the classroom to a creative end?

    I had a twitter chat with another classroom regarding a novel during the global readaloud project.

    I use a Twitterwall with every class. We have a hashtagged commentary going on throughout the class.

    I found a cute idea on Pinterest where you cover the table with butcher paper, and the kids "tweet" about a book they are reading. Plan on trying that in the next few weeks...

    I use twitter for professional development. I meet twice a week with differing educators around the country. We pose a pertinent question and all brainstorm ideas to help one another grow in our thinking or challenge one another to make positive changes in our schools or classrooms to enhance the learning or culture within our schools.
