Roush, EdTechSandy Headline First edTech Tweets of the Week List

Posted in EdTech Tweets of the Week, Recent Events, twitter, Web 2.0 by Mark Barnes on February 20, 2010

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m no Twitter expert, but as a language arts teacher and long-time edtech expert, I like to think I recognize both good technology and good writing.

Plus, although I know my students would disagree, I like to think I have a good sense of humor.

These things being said, here is the first installment of what I hope will be both a regular and popular list of edtech Tweets of the Week.  My humble commentary is in parentheses at the end of each Tweet. If you think I’ve missed something, please comment. In fact, feel free to comment anyway.

Digital Media Theme http://bit.ly/b6Ea3h – focuses on persuasive writing and AFL – would love to hear what people think! (It’s informative; plus I teach language arts, so I’m a little biased)

Oh, come on, http://www.fora.tv. If you’re going to auto-play a commercial, at least give me the option to pause it or turn down the volume. (Cory is one of the smartest and wittiest young tweeters I’ve seen)

  All educators need law coursses: RT @mashable School Accused of Secretly Spying on Students Through Laptop Webcams http://bit.ly/d8CZXZ (Certainly not Sandy’s best, but she’ll likely be a regular on this list — a true star in our business)
Lee Kolbert TeachaKidd

Marsha Collier MarshaCollier
So true! RT @vanillabean45 I’ve decided I don’t want to be anyone’s friend or lover. I want to be a client. They get better treatment. (There’s a lot to be said for cynicism)
Ben Wildeboer WillyB
Got some good work done after school, though now it’s 5:00 and I’m still at work on Friday. Need to get out! (Anyone working at 5:00 on a Friday deserves to be recognized. . . or institutionalized)

    Nice list, and fun feature to look forward to you. But you credited someone when they only retweeted someone else. Shouldn’t that be a no-no?

    Thanks for the comment Sue. I like your point about the retweet; I overlooked it. I’ll definitely watch that for future editions.
