What are some ways secondary teachers might use Twitter in their classrooms?

Have students provide clues to help solve a mystery name or define a vocab term.

Have students provide step-by-steps to solve a math problem or providing instructions to travel from point A to point B.

Students could develop tweets as if they were a famous historical figure or a literary character.

I think teachers could use Twitter as the most basic of classroom websites where they post announcements and reminders.

Have students do research and post their findings, as a classroom Twitter account, for others to read and critique. (@cwebbtech)

Use Twitter or a similar microblogging service as a backchannel for student questions/link repository during lecture or large class discussions (@damian613)

Use Twitter or edmodo as an "exit ticket" to check for understanding of classroom objectives for the day. (@tscheeler)
