    Tweeting in the classroom
    I have been using twitter since the Iranian elections in 2009 when I recognised its power in being able to send messages from specific locations that would help organisers and protestors converge and make their voices heard.
    I have found it a great medium for links, photographs and comments on subjects that I am interested in. This year, twitter has been even more important as a way for Egyptian protestors to communicate and #tahrir is my most popular search.
    I started reading a little about using twitter in the classroom and then had some informal conversations with a colleague in the middle school. Sharing articles, we discussed the best way to use it in our own teaching. I checked with the HS principal about any issues of internet safety and she was very supportive of my ideas.
    The first project was to tweet about a film that we were going to watch in IB 2 SL Geography. It took students just a short time to open twitter accounts (about 25% of the students already had accounts) and I showed them briefly the different ways to use it. Using the handle @CACIBGeo to start all tweets, and the #oil, students were asked to tweet at least ten times during the film.
    I provided these guidelines:
    A tweet can:
    -summarise a chapter with a main idea
    -provide details to support a fact
    -ask a thoughtful, open ended question
    -provide a criticism or analysis
    -give a quote with a comment
    -link to a relevant article with a comment
    I favourited the best tweets and then put them into storify so that I could then embed them in our CAC IB Geo wiki and the students would have a record of the film. See this page.
    My final tweet to the students was to ask them how they felt about using twitter. I also storified these comments and embedded them below.
