Twitter @PS10Brooklyn


This is cross posted from http://ps10tech.blogspot.com/


Twitter is a great resource. It is no longer just Ashton Kutcher talking about what he ate for breakfast (although, I'm sure there is probably still a lot of that going on).

These days teachers are using Twitter as another method of communicating with parents. There is a PS 10 Twitter account that posts school announcements, shares classroom work, and in general acts as another way to connect the school with the community. A lot of parents have signed up for Twitter (its free) just to follow their child's classroom feed or the PS 10 feed. There are many teachers who speak highly of the home-school connecting Twitter fosters and the instructional engagement it supports.



So, Twitter has value as a communication tool. But what if you don't want to sign up? What if you have no way to check Twitter? If you don't want a Twitter account, or don't have a phone capable of downloading an app, you can follow Twitter via text. Here is how it works:


Just text Twitter at 40404 and then type any of the following commands:Follow [username] - allows you to receive updates from that user.OFF or STOP or LEAVE - turns off receiving updates from the users you are following.ON - will turn on device updates and you will start receiving tweets again.WHOIS [username] - retrieves the profile information of the user.STATS - returns the number of people that you are following.GET [username] - retrieves the latest update that user has posted.

Feel free to follow any or all of these PS 10-based Twitter accounts!
