5 ways you can use Twitter in the classroom or for education

Twitter is a micro-blogging and social networking service for friends, family and co-workers to stay in touch with each other. today i joined twitter and i found it quite fun! here are 5 ways i think it can be useful in the classroom or education.

1) Twitter can be a good way to spread a message around the whole classroom, to the teacher or even the whole school! If you want to tell someone something, you can just type it in and update it! The other people will get the message too and they can reply back!

2) This can also be fun because you can create stories and poems on twitter. Each person tells one part of the story and then the next person continues.

3) It is a great way to stay in touch with your friends, family and relatives. You can even stay in touch with your classmates and teachers!

New Technology

In my holidays my uncle got a new Plasma T.V made by Sony. is it 42 inches wide and is a flat T.V. To go to the Sony website and learn more about Sony, click here. If you want to see my uncle's 42 inch plasma flat screen T.V, click here, or here. to read a review about it click here. I think this is a great T.V and has interesting features. It has changed my uncle's life a lot because they have just moved to the U.A.E some time ago and there was nothing to do. Now that they have something to watch and enjoy. The only thing i don't like about it is that it is 1 megapixle. If it were 2 mp then it would be better but 2mp is only in the 46 inch one. If they release a newer version of this T.V, i would recommend that they put in a U.S.B slot so that they can play movies or anything straight from the usb. They should also make the 42 inch plasma T.V a 2 mp T.V for better resolution and crisper photos.

This T.V has a lot of features. To learn about them visit this page. I think everyone should have this T.V because you can do a lot of things like pause the program even is it is broadcasted and you can even pause it and then play back everything you missed. it is 1megapixel but the pictures are excellent, wonderful and crisp. i think everyone should have this t.v and i like it very much.
