Using Twitter as class blogs

Lakeview School has recently started using class Twitter pages instead of class blogs.  Already I can see that this is going to be a lot more successful.  Here's why:
  • It's so easy to send a Tweet
  • Posts are only 140 characters
  • Attaching photos and video is very simple
  • Parents can access through their phones (this is the only Internet access some of our families have)
  • All teachers have been provided with iPads, with the Twitter app loaded, signed in, and ready to go.
You can check out our Twitter pages through the links on our website homepage.
