    I will definitely need a certificate of completion to get PD credit. Thanks for all the great ideas.

  • Renee Herbert

    Great info! My first webinar…..and feeling like I’m not very technologically savvy. I’ll make a personal account and work it out…. never hurts to try.

    I enjoyed this webinar and would love a certificate of participation. I was KimH, K4sons on Twitter.
    I’m convinced that maybe I should be using Twitter instead of Edmodo. I will at least talk to the classroom teachers about it.
    Just a note. The blog colors make it hard to see the link to add a comment.
    Thanks again for providing wonderful content in your Webinars!

    Amazing approach to another usage of twitter.

    definetely love it….it helped me a lot because I’m looking for a way to interact with students and parents.

    Thanks

    This gave me lots of great ideas on using Twitter in the classroom. I’m thinking of having students post book reviews for parallel reading assignments.

    I just found this archived webinar and listened to it. I have not thought of using Twitter for the classroom. I teach 9 and 12 grades ESL. It has been fun utilizing student cell phones for the dictionary, googledocs sites for student eportfolios, for students taking pictures of notes and assignments on the board, for reading Romeo and Juliet with commentary that students share to help us all understand Shakespeare’s language using the R & J phone app, and to text parents with info to subvert any concerns, better than email. I have used facebook, edublogs, and lots of brainpop, yes, high schoolers love it. Now, I will give twitter a try. No credit hours option in my county, but I would like a certificate for my portfolio. Thanks

    This was the first hour for my required online PD, and I plan to use my remaining five hours for other BrainPop Webinar topics. I recently began using Twitter to communicate assignments and announcements with my students and it has been a great thing — as a younger teacher, I want to strive to communicate with them in the way THEY want to be communicated with in 2011! But this gave me more specifics on how to tie Twitter in with specific educational opportunities educational side, not just posting assignments and announcements. Good stuff!

    If I could get a certificate for participation with this Webinar that would be fantastic. nicholas.brandon@pccsmail.net. Thanks so much!

    Hey, Nick! I would love to hear more about how you use Twitter with your students and if you tie in BrainPOP when doing so. Feel free to email me your ideas, perhaps we can turn it into a guest blog post! tatumm@brainpop.com
