How often do you want to try something new but don’t know where to start? Recently I came across Kathy Schrock’s Blog which includes everything you could possibly want to know about integrating Twitter into your K-12 Classroom program. Let’s begin with a common understanding of Twitter . . .

What is Twitter?

Kathy’s blog houses other resources that also explore the question, What is Twitter? She lists Books about Twitter and using Twitter, and information about Why we should use Twitter. As well, you will find a comprehensive collection of information about Twitter Applications like Tweetdeck, along with a list of sites to help you Find Others on Twitter.

Some of my favourite resources listed on her site include:

  • Twittonary (a Twitter dictionary) – just type in the Twitter acronym or abbreviation and it’s translated for you!
  • Twitter for School Administrators
  • Twitter Classroom Examples (hundreds of ideas to integrate Twitter into your program)
  • Tools to Extend Twitter (TweetCloud, Twubs, A-Z Dictionary of Twitter Hashtags. . .)
  • Twitter Tips and Tricks (check out Kathy’s Infographic below)
