Before this class, I had a personal Twitter account, however, I never used it, ever. Using Twitter in SEDU183 has definitely expanded my knowledge of the site. I, personally, would prefer to not use Twitter a lot, only because it still confuses me, but I do enjoy getting to know how to use different technologies in the classroom. Dr. Smith would tweet a question that he would like for us to answer, and everyone tweeted their two-cents. After seeing everyone else's answers, my partners, Meg Dulion, Lindsey Downing, and I used Facebook to communicate to each other what we wanted to write down officially on our quiz documents. It was a lot of fun using the different social networking websites to take a quiz. Here is what went on during our Twitter quiz-time.
Although Twitter seems to be permanently linked to being only for personal, and social uses, I do not believe that to be entirely true. I feel that teachers could use Twitter, and maybe other social medias, to help their students learn the content subject as well as how to use technology inside and outside of the classroom. We must utilize the new technology that have been presented to us to our advantage and teach/prepare our students for the future where technology is forever changing.
