Teaching with Twitter
There’s an entire universe in every single tweet.”- Jack Dorsey
Twitter has various updates, which have made it a wonderful app and web tool for learning a language. Students can express themselves through text, images, gifs, and videos. They can follow different language learning Twitter accounts to build their vocabulary and improve their grammar. Students are able to also keep up with current events and learn from others by crowdsourcing. Students can click on Moments to explore current events visually and from various points-of-views. Students can also create their own moments, which are multimedia rich stories. Students can search hashtags to interact with other language learners and find language learning exercises and resources. Below find my presentation, Teaching English with Twitter. To discover 12 ways to teach with Twitter, check out the post I wrote for ESL Library, 12 Ways to Use Twitter with Language Learners.
