Twitter in a History Classroom

All year, it seems, I'd been looking for a way to get the students excited about writing and sharing ideas about whatever we were learning. We used chart paper and sticky notes, taped small pieces of paper to the walls and board, and used small white boards to share. All of these are things I will continue to use, but I wanted go do something that didn't involve so much material management.

I like how the teacher in the video uses Twitter to give his students a voice. For some, it was a major shift socially for the better.
