If the kids aren't paying attention in class, maybe they'll follow a teacher on Twitter, learning in 140-character bursts of knowledge. The current issue of Educational Leadership includes this story about a 6th-grade English teacher's experience using the online networking tool, both for teaching his kids and teaching himself. Want to dive in to the educational Twittersphere? Try this wiki. What's a wiki? It's an interactive site for sharing information that is built and constantly modified by the users. See Wikipedia. Any teachers in our area using Twitter? Let me know. One of these days soon we'll get this blog Twittered up.
P.S. Teachers are thinking about Facebook, too.
