Twitter - A Teaching and Learning Tool http://tinyurl.com/2k9fhw Twitter - A Teaching and Learning Tool
In my experience, and in the short time that I have used it, Twitter has grown quickly to play a major part in the way that I interact with fellow colleagues and professionals from around the world.
In my classroom and with the children I teach it has been an exciting tool to utilise and support learning. However it is one of many tools that we have at our disposal. I do not see it replacing any of the others we use nor do I see the positive impact upon learning being exclusive to Twitter.

Am just not sure if I should list this as a "Presence Monitoring" application or as a new kind of Blog (which does not accept comments and the Posts tend to be shorter than normal)

You can also look at tumblelogs as slightly more structured blogs that make it easier, faster, and more fun to post and share stuff you find or create.
