Teachers, how do you use Twitter in your classroom? Social media is taking over and students are constantly checking in. And it doesn’t stop there. As an elementary teacher, I know my students’ parents are becoming increasingly dependent on the platforms of Twitter and Facebook for their daily news and interactions.
So, do you put them to work for you?
I have seen high school teachers tweeting news and assignments to their students knowing full well they will check that long before they look in their agendas. Many teachers design Facebook pages for their classes. But, how do we use it in Elementary school? Obviously, our students are too young to be using these platforms (or they are as far as Twitter and Facebook rules go, but really, how many have an account??). So, how do we use it in a way that reaches parents and keeps them involved?
