Learning to Tweet in Kindergarten: This Teacher Deserves An Award

Every once in a while, an inspirational story surfaces which deserves notice. This is one such story.

This week, a kindergarten teacher used her blog to describe her use of Twitter in the classroom. Please read her blog entry as it gets to the heart of how social media can add new dimensions to teaching – even for the youngest children.

Her description of how Twitter made it possible for her kindergarten class to learn that “Snow days are really real!” is priceless.

In our estimation, what this teacherĀ  has done so beautifully, is to introduce children to the larger world using social media. She has done this in a controlled and completely safe manner. She has done this in an age-appropriate manner. Best of all, she has touched the imaginations of her children in a way that they will likely remember for the rest of their lives.

Congratulations to this teacher, and to all of the teachers in the #kinderchat discussion group on Twitter who are using social media to trade ideas and resources, ask questions and get answers! Thank-you for your excellence and your example to the rest of us!
