Are you on Twitter? Are your students' parents and families? Did you answer yes? Very techy. No? Are you living under a rock?
...OK, that was mean. But, this is the 21st century.
According to Twitter's blog, 140 million tweets are sent a day which adds up to a billion tweets every eight days. Yes, I just quoted a billion. What's everyone talking about? Life, love, the pursuit of happiness, favorite coffee drinks from Starbucks, what's on the dollar menu, how much snow dumped on Colorado's ski resorts, education, why Trader Joe's is so cool, Pink's new song...wait, did I just say "education?"
Rewind. Yes, people are tweeting about education. One of my favorite educational tweets is from Edutopia (George Lucas created this foundation, so you know it is cool). You can visit (or follow) their tweet here.
Why not tweet in your classroom? Oh, I know what you are going to say, you don't have enough computers, iTouches or smart phones. No problem, I made you a tweet exit ticket. See? You can go old-school with this download and print it on paper.
Voila, a paper tweet. To get yourself a full page of these tweet-a-licious reflection tools, click on the image below.
...I'm kind of sassy today, aren't I?
