Twitter for Teachers … a great video introduction

I know I tweeted this out earlier this week but it’s so good I wanted to make sure I didn’t forget it, so here it is again:

YouTube: To Tweet or Not to Tweet?

Produced in a great puppet-master way it’s engaging and informative, and really good if you want to demonstrate to someone the benefits of Twitter for academic purposes: research, student engagement, etc.

“You might ask yourself how something written in 140 characters or less can be interesting and relevant to education or your pedagogical practice? Surprisingly it is often enough to get us interested in reading more by following a link, to start a conversation, or to get us thinking about something new. And that’s just by following a few people who tweet, you don’t have to tweet a peep.”

Thanks to Edutopia for this and many more excellent Twitter / Video resources.
