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. But what if we told you that there are Kindergarteners on there as well? Yes, actual kindergartners, but not individual five and six-year-olds, mind you, rather the class as a whole.
Twitter offers a great way to teach kids to master concise communication – and it’s a hit with parents and grandparents. And anyone with a kindergartner will tell you that they are notorious for not remembering a thing about what they did in school all day, but not these kids!
