How to use Twitter for teaching: Professors share their real-life experience

From JS Online: Milwaukee-Journal Sentinel:

Professors experiment with Twitter as teaching tool

Facebook may be the social medium of choice for students, but Twitter has found adherents among professors. Twitter is helping them build community in their classes in a way that appeals to the Facebook generation.

Some students are assigned to live tweeting: publishing the speaker's thoughts on Twitter during the presentation.

Twitter helps students develop key skills: listening, information-gathering, multitasking and succinct writing.

Twitter allows professors to post links to what they're reading - students "follow" them.

Professors "listen" to conversations students have with each other on Twitter to gauge what questions they have.
