Twitter in the classroom.... 2 ideas!

Today in our seminar class Noni, Philippe and I inatvertantly found 2 different ways you could use twitter in the classroom:

a) As a way to remind students about homework assignments (if twitter is linked to their phone number so they can get texts from twitter), since in high school you don't see everyone at the end of the day (unless you teach the last block), however, this can be too much hand holding but at the beginning might be a nice way to remind students of homework.

b) As a way for shy students to ask questions during class that they are too afraid to ask in front of everyone (again, it would be attached to a phone or something so everyone wouldn't know who said it and they feel less awkward)
