Twitter for Teachers

When I first tried Twitter, the microblogging site, a year ago, it didn't grab me.

12 months on and with a greater exposure in the mass media, Twitter is coming in to its own as a way of making connections and doing so in a timely way. 

I've found it most useful as a tool for sharing and gathering ideas between colleagues on the MA in Online Education I've begun at the Open University, and increasingly as a means to find other educators interested in technology-enhanced learning.

One of those people, Laura Walker, has written a good blog post about why Twitter is worth using by school teachers. You can read it here.

twitter is so confusing and half of it is pointless drivel...
