Twitter in Education

Do you tweet? With the Twitter explosion around the world, more and more educators are wondering what--if any--benefit Twitter can bring to the classroom. Check out this video of Dr. Monica Rankin, a professor of History at UT Dallas, who was looking for a way to involve more students in her large class in classroom discussion.

Click here to read the notes of Dr. Rankin's experiment, and here to read the blog post from Kim Smith, the graduate student who created the video.

We'd love to hear your comments about this emerging and popular technology. Do you use Twitter in the classroom? Tell us more. :)
