Extro/averts and Introverts in the Classroom

Just wondering……

Do you consider yourself introverted or extro/averted ?  Does this make any difference in your teaching style? 

How do you feel about students who display extro/averted characteristics?  Do you allow for differentiation in this area? 

I would love to see some comments on this.

Twitter in the classroom?

Twitter — 140 characters to say…..

  • what you are doing –whether sensible or inane
  • professional links, events, news

But can it be used in the classroom?  Sure, but how?  Well, how about Twittering…..

  • from a book character
  • from an historical person
  • from an historical event
  • about a science concept
  • vocabulary studies for ESL
  • about a math concept

Some sites with Twitter in the classroom ideas are:
