Teachers Use Cell Phones to Tweet at Movies!

In order to help students improve their writing skills (and thinking around writing & literacy), principle Kipp Rogers at Passages Middle School in Virginia decided to have his teachers do an activity with their cell phones at the movie theater! Yes! They were asked to turn on their cell phones and text message to twitter during the movie Julie & Julia.

Those who think blogging skills are exercised using Twitter know nothing about either. Blogging can involve analysis and distillation, filtered through an individual's worldview, to present information on a topic. It is impossible to blog in the 140-character limited Twitter format.

Most of our teachers in school are already hooked in Twitter. This is actually a great way for them to connect with their students.
