On one of my previous posts about Twitter in education, I shared 3 reflections to help you decide if Twitter is the “long-term tool” you are looking for to use in class. I mentioned how one of my challenges is to extend its use beyond the classroom so that students can continue to follow people or organizations that have a meaning to them personally or professionally and how we can build communities to encourage students to use Twitter to make real connections and share their views beyond the classroom and for life.

Here is how Pasi Sahlberg, visiting professor at Harvard Graduate School of Education, is involving the whole community of educators to participate in his class discussions, such a fantastic way to enrich class debates through the lens of teachers and future teachers with multiple, international perspectives. If you teach future teachers, this is a great way for them to use Twitter and express their thoughts on different educational practices.
