Starting an educational twitter account has been a great success. At least two or three times a day I find myself scrolling my timeline and adding a few tweets to my favorites, to check on later. The pool of resources is endless and the discussions between fellow cohort members has been great too.
One simple resource that I found, that I never would have searched out on my own, is the web site: www.flipsnack.com. It is a web site that allows you to produce flip books for iPhones, iPads, etc. The benefit of this is endless. It can simply be used to provide a sense of pride in the second grade student who gets to see her storybook on her Dad’s iPad or a more professional look to the classroom’s monthly newsletter. I think any level teacher could use this to engage students and parents, a like.
Now, I should give credit where credit is due and share the helpful hint. I got this @Joe_Mazza and his tweet below:
