Barone, Diane M.; Mallette, Marla H.
Reading Teacher, v66 n5 p377-379 Feb 2013
The Editors of The Reading Teacher introduce a new column, "By Educators, for Educators" through sharing ideas from the Interesting Ways series edte.ch/blog/interesting-ways/. Curated by Tom Barrett, the Interesting Ways Series is an example of crowdsourcing or the power collaborative thought. The Interesting Ways Series has more than 30 topics, with new ideas continually added via EDTECH at edte.ch/blog/ and Twitter. It is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial Share Alike 3.0 License, allowing collaborators to share the work as well as add ideas. Therefore, the ideas for using different types of technology in the classroom are added via open source, with some more applicable than others. This column presents interesting ways to use Twitter for teaching and learning literacy.
