Twitter in the Classroom

Today's generation of students is the most technologically savvy that the world has ever known--and teachers are using blogs, wikis, and Twitter to engage them.

Daisy Pignetti, an Assistant Professor of Composition and Rhetoric at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, is using Twitter in her English classes. She says, "“I had students create an account and use it as an active reading exercise.” And, student reaction has been positive.

How do I know this? I follow Professor Pignetti on Twitter!

You can learn more about how Professor Pignetti has incorporated Twitter into her classes by watching this video.
