Twitter: A Resource for All

Mike Grant sent this along to me:

“Is Twitter ‘useless, meaningless, and a timewaster’ or is it free professional development? Watch this 4 minute video to see how a principal grew his Twitter account.

Fakebook and Twister

This is a really fun and innovative way to gain interest from students by putting information into the format of well-known social networks.

With Fakebook, you can create a fake Facebook-like page for literary characters, historical figures, or anyone else you can think of. You can also explore pages already created by other users. It’s a fun way to interact with the format without having to deal with advertisements or issues of privacy.

Twister, a fake version of Twitter, allows students to create fictional status updates. The creative uses of these tools, which were originally made by teachers, are endless!
