My Twitter Experiment, Benefit 2

If an interesting article comes across my Twitter timeline, I can simply retweet it. Or…read the article, then decide whether to send it out.

Example:

How heroin kills you http://t.co/vawrSNYM26

This relates to my class’s reading of “The Case of the Frozen Addicts” so I took a look at the article and tweeted it to my class.

I find the Twitter platform great for sharing this type of article. I think it’s still early in the implementation with my students, but I do occasionally get students commenting (mostly in person, less often on Twitter) on articles I post to Twitter. My goal is to post at least one article link per day. I’m sure I’m short of this goal, but anytime something intriguing I throw it up there to grab my students’ attention.

How about Twitter in your classroom? Have you seen benefits from using it with your students?
