Another post that I came across on Twitter today was a great list of way that you can use Twitter in the classroom. Sure, the kids may use it to annoy you or chat with their friends, but there is a plethora of things that you can do on Twitter that will actually be helpful and potentially get your kids more engaged since it is something that they are already using.
My favorites from the long list of sixty ideas are: Classroom notepad, Twitter pop quiz, Classroom connections, Talk to career experts, Daily word games, An exercise in learning to be concise (perfect for long winded kiddos), Conference following, Link sharing, and Twitter art show.

If you can't beat them, you might as well join them!
