Twitter works in the classroom

Twitter is more advanced than e-mail, just as powerful as text
messaging, comparable to blogging, encourages concise and focused
writing, promotes safe digital social networking and functions as a
powerful web search tool. Why then are there so few school leaders
and teachers using it to supplement classroom learning?

    I was wondering what twitter desktop client you use. I've seen a layout like the one in this post.

    This looks like a great idea! As hooked as kids are on myspace, IM, and general computer stuff, getting a tool like this might help to keep the student’s attention.

    The Blackboard tool has had success in the universities but is not well suited for the lower grades. I think a tool like this might help get, otherwise dis-interested, kids organized and open new channels of communication with their teachers and classmates that does not currently exist.

    Good Work!
