This week we have started a class Twitter account which has been fun and beneficial. The initial purpose of this was:
- To allow children to connect with other teachers and students around the world.
- Students like to share their learning on Uspace but feel they only have a small audience. With Twitter, they can share their learning with other classes, globally.
- To allow students to reflect on a more regular and organic basis, online.
- It provides a genuine audience for their learning.
They have also enjoyed reading what other classes have been up to and have been excited when others begin to following them. I’d recommend it!
