Using Twitter to teach children how to write

After featuring an earlier post on this blog an article on how a British teacher used blogging to encourage students to write, check out this really interesting article on teaching children to write in France using Twitter.  Great to see web 2.0 tools being used for such a worthwhile purpose in schools across the world!  The article starts:

'Seated in front of the family computer, with his mother watching him, Lucas, 7, let his 30 Twitter followers know that "my cousins Eva and Léa are coming to my house tonight." It's just like he does at school. In 2010, Lucas was a pupil in the first primary school class in France to use Twitter to learn how to read and write.'
