How To Use Twitter in the Classrom: Stand Alone Instructional Resource

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Mark Hansen (Teacher (K-12)), Nov 04, 2012

As someone who is just starting to experiment with using Twitter in the classroom this StAIR was quite helpful.  Although I am familar with Twitter I experimented with the portion of the StAIR for those that were not and thought that section could be a great help in the classroom when setting students up with a Twitter account.  the other section, which gave ideas on how to use twitter in a classroom was quite informative and I appreciated the screencast that gave a tour of twitter.  It was a great way to model the various uses.  I also felt that the quizzes offered feedback and provided an authentic check of one's ability to use and interact with twitter. Overall, this StAIR would be great for anyone interested in using twitter in their classroom and, with a few adjustments, could be used to teach students how to use twitter to enhance their own learning.  

Technical Remarks:

Very easy to download.  Some buttons on the actual StAIR were a bit hard to find, but it did not affect my experience in using it.
