This whole Twitter thing...

As you can see from the poll results on the left, not many of you are on Facebook, at least not in a significant way. I'm guessing that it's also the case that most of you aren't on Twitter, since it's newer and since FB is a bit easier to handle than Twitter. But, our students are on it. Have you explored it at all? What do you think?

Here's an interesting article on using Twitter to get feedback from students about their learning. It's really focused on institutional planning, but I think it is also interesting to see the types of things students said.

Can you think of ways you could use Twitter in your teaching? Is anyone using it now?
