Twittering in Education

This is an old web posting: http://www.emergingedtech.com/2010/02/100-ways-to-teach-with-twitter/

But it raises an interesting issue and your chance to correct me.

My impression is that, in Australian schools at least, Twitter, for a variety of reasons, gets minimal use.
Am I right?
By and with students that is, but a different scenario exists with teachers.

Do you Tweet?

Jane Knight lists it as a key tool for professionals

It came out as #1 in her Top 100 tools for Learning in 2010 (and it was #1 in 2009 too)
It still looks like #1 so far on her 2011 list

Twitter apparently grew hugely in 2010


In the past 12 months, Twitter users sent an astonishing 25 billion Tweets and we added more than 100 million new registered accounts.


If you have time to look

Where I tweet

I found it necessary, even essential, to separate my work and personal personas.
I would describe myself as an occasional tweeter.
I have set things up so that my blog postings automatically get posted into the appropriate Twitter account.
