Twitter in the classroom

Grade 2 has started tweeting…

This week they have started their communication with other elementary classes. They have asked a couple of questions and waiting for their answers. They found out that they have a follower (me:) and sent me some tweets, too.

After the session is over I had a change to have a chat with the Kindergarten teacher Ms. Cowdy. Her class (KC) has been tweeting since the beginning of the year. She has offered her kids to visit grade 2 classes for a twitter session. Grade 2 students are looking forward to the session. Yey!

Grade 2 is tweeting!

As a part of their UOI How we organize ourselves, 2C started using twitter . They first set up their account with their teacher and named themselves @yis2c. In our school all the elementary classes have their nicknames start with yis and follow by their class initials. We looked into hashtags, what they are for, how to follow other peopl. How to write a message and how to keep it short.

So far they have tweeted two messages and replied to one from another grade 2 class. To support them, I have tweeted out their attempt and asked the other grades to communicate with them. Looking forward to how this project will roll on in this grade level.

The social network

Have you seen the movie ‘ The Social Network’ ? I highly recommend it. It is about how to build a social networking website (facebook), its ups and downs and building road to success.
