Twitterchats in the classroom?

Toby MetcalfToby Metcalf Administrator, Team BoomWriter admin

Good day #teachers,
I am a huge fan of #Twitter and participate in many tweetchats. They are great for networking as well as learning - are any of you using them in your classroom or schools?

This is a taste of the article HOSTING A CLASS TWITTER CHAT IN YOUR CLASSROOM:
"Today, teachers often face an uphill battle against digital distractions in the classroom. In particular, students tend to get sidetracked by social media, such as Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter. So instead of waging war against social media, why not turn it into a teaching tool?"

I look forward to your comments and happy to discuss Twitter and tweetchats.
Best,
Toby
