Some people seem to worry about Twitter
in the same way as they do about facebook and wonder how on earth
it might be of value in the classroom. Whilst some people do tweet
a load of rubbish there are many many more who provide valuable
links, ideas, thoughts which, if you're looking for inspiration
or just an answer to a question, could be helpful.
Searching twitter, looking for particular hashtags, can be rewarding
and surprsing too. The results you'll get will be completely different
to those from a Google search and sometimes that can be just what
you need. Obviously, you need to be wary of results but links and
images added to tweets can add considerable value to 140 characters.
What I particularly like is the immediacy of twitter. You'll often
discover what's being developed or happening in the world first
