Twitter

Are you on Twitter yet?  It isn’t just celebrities telling us what they had for lunch, or friends telling us about their bodily functions. The educational possibilities for Twitter are tremendous. Just today we retweeted items related to language, games, photography, Vancouver history, iPads, teaching, Drop Everything and Read, The Hobbit, Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement, comics, libraries, flags, school libraries, public libraries, authors, literacy, our writing contest, and more.  We share about what we are doing in the school library learning commons, we share about what is happening in the school, we share about the things our kids are learning in classes, and we share about all sorts of things.
