Twitter Applications in Learning



Twitter is one of my favourite tools. To understand what Twitter is, study the visual above. Initially meant for and focussed on communication, it has worked well in some learning situations, for example in English language classes where students are forced to tweet within 140 characters.

Perhaps the book below will generate more ideas on how educators can benefit from Twitter!
