Engaging Students With Twitter Gadgets
Listen to a sample here.
Other cool twitter tools we use include TwitterGadget - Twitter Client. This clean little app allows users to submit status updates to Twitter via your iGoogle homepage or Gmail Account.
We use Twitpics for posting pictures directly to twitter. The image below is from Google Maps/Street View. For this activity the students were asked to pick a location in their community where they would like to erect a movie theater.
I blogged about Dial2Do a few weeks ago, a fantastic tool for sending audio messages to twitter. You can also send audio messages to Google Calendar, send audio e-mails, audio text messages and more. I first learned about Dial2Do from blogger and educator Lisa Durff, over what else - my twitter network.
We've also had a lot of fun using twitter to share movies and television shows from hulu.
And the fun and learning doesn't stop there. A few days ago Professor Scott Mcleod posted a tweet about TwitMic a shiny little app for the iPhone that allows users to post crystal clear audio to directly twitter.
