As you know twitter is a growing technology. That’s right, it’s not just a web site. It’s a innovative technology with it’s own API for other developers to make use of for creating desktop software and/or web based software. An examples would be the Tweetie app for the IPhone.
If today’s high school would utilize this type of networking. We could all receive our homework or even work info in 140 characters.:) First off they would need a Twitter client that is programmed to read tweets from their teachers accounts. Then every time the teacher wants' to give homework or you forget to write the assignment down for the day you can just check your laptop, or Phone, and “Tada” you have your assignment. This type of fast and quick response time for homework assignments or just learning something new, would be so much faster than email or teacher/student conferences. With the great Ajax implantation you can get auto updated via. your web browser with out even refreshing the page…. or you can just use the client type app that I suggested at the top of this post. So enjoy. I have had my say in the whole twitter in school deal, and I am going to stick with my opinion that we should have it in and out and literally all around out schools. :)
