Did you know that 84 percent of schools have used Twitter to send up-to-date announcements to students?
Moreover, studies have shown that students who use Twitter in the classroom achieve a higher GPA by an average of 0.5 points, and professors are now far more likely to allow laptops in the classroom than they are calculators – 98 percent of classrooms now have internet access, and 91 percent of college faculty engage in social media as part of their course work.
Much like anything else, you can find a chat focusing on Kindergarten on Twitter – like this one, #Kinderchat. And you can also find Kindergarten teachers on there, no doubt.
