Twitter and Me

Twitter! Where do i begin, well at first I was not a fan of twitter I found it to be confusing and was not sure what the purpose of a #hash-tag was. After I got a personal Twitter I learned to enjoy using my twitter as a new social networking site. When Prof.Smith asked us to create a professional twitter and use it for teaching I was not that thrilled of the idea. I have grown to enjoy using it in my SEDU183 class and in learning how to use it as a future educator. I really enjoyed using my twitter to take our quiz. I liked that we collaborated as a class to get answers and to hear what our classmates thought of the questions. I do see myself using my twitter in my classroom, not as much as a communication device to parents but as a homework posting site, updates for class or reminders. I want to become better at using twitter before becoming an educator so that I can use it to the best of my ability for my students. Twitter is a good social networking site different from others like facebook. I think they all have their ups and downs.

I thought this picture fit well as we do want our students to be tweeting :)


  1. I too thought Twitter was confusing but now I really like it especially since we are using it in the class. Never have I imagined myself using Twitter to take a test. That was a really cool experience. I also can see myself using Twitter in the classroom someday! And nice picture! :)

  2. I completely agree with you about Twitter. I really don't like it, but the fact that I can follow education related people that I admire makes it useful for a classroom setting.

  3. I too thought Twitter was a confusing thing. When I first started I was so lost! I myself think it will be a very helpful tool to use.
