Recognize this little twirp? (I mean twitter...) I have been playing around with Twitter for awhile and have recently discovered that a small few of my students are starting to use it increasingly as an alternative to messaging. It has not really caught on yet as only 5 or 6 of my students out of 54 have accounts, however there is interest.  


I have been encouraged to push ahead with more action research into classroom applications for Twitter following presentations by my students based on visits to schools in and around Sharjah and Ajman (UAE) (Tweeted on May 26th). Numerous groups mentioned 'clickers', those infamous little gadgets that students lose and teachers dread because they are so annoying to set up. I think the idea is fine, but the clickers themselves are not. I think Twtter is a nice, web-based solution that does not require additional investment in soon-to-be out-dated hardware. The only problem now? This is the last week of classes.... A good idea for September.
