Whilst at Online Educa last week a number of people queried the fact that Twitter was #1 on the Top 100 Tools for Learning. I explained how for many people Twitter was particularly important as a personal learning tool, and pointed them to the many examples of how learning professionals are using Twitter.
But for those who are looking for examples of how to use Twitter in a more formal learning context, I recently came across this clever example of how to use Twitter, which Silvia Tolisano has written up in a posting on her Langwitches blog. Rather than repeat the activity here, you can read all about it in the link below.
As Silvia points out, It demonstrates very clearly the power of the Twitter network, and as one of the comments states: "This is the way learning should be!"
