Do you use Facebook or Twitter in the classroom (or know someone who does)?

I’ll be presenting examples of classroom uses of social networking tools at the Campus Technology 2011 conference. Do you have a story you would like share?


If you’ve used Twitter or Facebook in the classroom successfully, and would be willing to have your story shared here on EmergingEdTech and possibly with CT 2011 conference attendees this summer, please let me know about it. If you know a teacher who has been using these apps, or any other social networking tools in the educational setting, please pass this post on to them.

I already have a good number of instructional uses of Twitter and Facebook to share in my presentation, but new examples are always welcomed. Naturally, the more clearly you can illustrate how using these tools engaged students and/or improved learning outcomes, the more impactful these stories will be, so please share a little about that if you can when you comment, or use the contact page, to submit your info. Don’t worry about writing anything elaborate – just drop a couple sentences to let me know what you’ve been up to, and we’ll work together to develop your story in writing.

I’ll be selecting responses to write about here, and choosing some to include in my presentation up in Boston in July. I look forward to hearing and sharing your story about Facebook, Twitter, or any other Social Networking tools that you or a colleague have used successfully in the instructional setting!
