Just read a great blog post, "Nine great reasons why teachers should use Twitter" that I believe would be timely reading within our district. Principals are starting to use Twitter with encouragement from the department of Community Relations and Communications. Students are starting to use twitter with teacher supervision to communicate with parents. The district used Twitter to quickly communicate our snow days just last week. I believe using Twitter as a just-in-time communication tool is starting to be understood and valued in St. Vrain.
Check out this article and forward it on to teachers that are considering and learning about Twitter. What are the reasons you use Twitter? Do you agree with all of those listed in the linked blog post? What has been the most valuable use of Twitter for you?
