Classroom Twitter at U of Texas

Twitter Bird

One of the things I love to do is browse social media sites and find great links on how people are using technology in unusual, interesting, and powerful ways to educate people in various fields. White recently playing around with Google Wave, I came across some waves people had made that talk about using technology (like Google Wave) in the classroom. In this particular thread was a youtube video that talked about one Dr. Monica Rankin using twitter to further class discussion in a university History class in the states. Now you must understand that at this point, as far as I was concerned, twitter was the most stupid thing I had ever heard of, and I saw no use to it. This video opened up a whole new world to me.
