The battle between cell phones in the classroom is loud and is quite a debate.  I personally feel that if all my students have a phone, why not use it to my advantage?  Let’s face it, Twitter and Facebook are our lives (at least a portion of the evenings) and students as well as adults tap into it on a daily basis.  Why not embed this into the classroom and our power points bringing a static slide alive with data rich results used to drive the daily instruction.

What web 2.0 is saying: “SAP Web 2.0 could be a great way to encourage students to start / keep using Twitter. It could also be a fun way to include distance learners who aren’t in the physical classroom. Taking an online class? Watching remotely? Participate via Twitter right in the presentation slide!”

What do you think??
