Twitter in the Classroom: 5 Twitter Tools for Educators

I found a great post by Angela Seits on the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) Connects Blog that I wanted to share with you.

As the author states:
Do you count yourself among a growing number of educators using Twitter to enhance classroom discussion, or are you considering testing out this platform for educational purposes in the future? You’re certainly not alone; in fact, the use of Twitter in the classroom is gaining traction, and was recently featured in a New York Times article.

If you’re interested in taking your Twitter-use to the next level, check out these tools for managing classroom discussion, creating follower lists, and gathering data about your Twitter discussions. These are just a few of the many tools available to enhance your experience using the standard Twitter platform.

By the way, I would also like to add TweetDeck. TweetDeck is something that I use that acts as a personal browser for staying in touch with what’s happening now, connecting you with your contacts across Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and more (i.e. MySpace).
