Quick and Easy - "Micro-blogging"

The more I learn about microblogging, the more I like the idea. Then again anything that doesn't take much thought and is easy is more my style--speaking about technology of course. Not that I'm against anything modern, I'd just rather be up doing something than sitting in front of the computer. All that aside, microblogging can be something that I'd like to incorporate in my class to help me communicate with parents. Trying to figure out how to involve those who don't have internet access is going to be a hurdle that I will encounter. Again, I'll just have try it and see how it works for me.


  1. I agree with you. I don't understand the people who can sit in front of a computer for hours looking and listening to things. I would rather be doing something. Using it as a communication tool for parents is a great idea. I think the hurdle all of us teachers will face could be overcome by finding out who those non-internet parents are and they would be the only ones to get a paper message. Hopefully that will be a minimal amount!

  2. Jasmine- I agree with you too about not liking to sit in front of a computer for long periods of time. Wait, we teach P.E.! I don't like sitting for long periods of time, period! This article helped me as a parent to understand a little more some of the sites that my kids are joining. I too would like to use something like a blog to keep parents informed, but lack of access to technology tends to be a big problem in the South. If you figure out a solution please let me know.
