Twitter in the Classroom

Throughout this semester I have been able to use Twitter for one of my elementary education courses. In this class our professor has demonstrate how Twitter is a powerful tool for teachers. In just a few short months we have been able to access all kinds of professional development knowledge from an unlimited number of sources. All semester I have been wishing it would be a requirement for all of college courses. I have found it a quick and easy way to pass on information to fellow educators.

I have also been reading some articles about how to implement using twitter in an elementary classroom.  This is the link to my favorite article about simple ways to use twitter in the classroom.

How are you using social media for professional development or in your classroom? What are your thoughts on it?
