Twitter Lessons in 140 Characters or Less
Manzo, Kathleen Kennedy
Education Week, v29 n8 p1, 14 Oct 2009
With scant research on the efficacy of social-networking tools such as Twitter, and few clear insights into the best (and worst) uses for them, there is little agreement among researchers and educators about how or whether Twitter-like technologies could or should be used in schools. This article discusses how teachers can use this popular social-networking site as part of their lessons and classwork. The author also shares some concerns on the potential negative impact of the latest technological applications.
