This is quite a good little video on “Why Teachers use Twitter” recorded at the 2009 140 Character Conference, with actual teachers talking about how they are using it for student and parent engagement.
The conference is all about;
“twitter as a platform and as a language we speak. Over time it will neither be the only platform nor the only language. #140conf is not an event about microblogging or the place where people share twitter “tips and techniques” but rather where we explore the effects of the emerging real-time Internet on Business.”
If only we could get something like this going here in the UK so we can share and learn from each other in the real-world; while it’s good to read about what someone else is doing, it’s no replacement for watching and talking to someone showing you what they do and the results they get.
Anyway, enjoy the video and if you’re interested in organising a UK #140confuk then let me know, I’ll be there!
