Resources found via Twitter

While pursuing the twitter-sphere I came across a blog that was retweeted. The blog The Innovative Teacher written by Lisa Nielsen is a great resource and tool for teachers to go to learn how to present material in fresh new ways to engage the student. 

One post I found particularly interesting is Using Cell Phones to Increase Student Achievement and Engagement with Reading and Writing. Cell phone use when I was in school was non-existent until I reached high school and even then it wasn’t allowed to be turned on during school hours – so it was very interesting to read ways in which texting can be implemented in a classroom to facilitate in learning reading and writing skills – check it out!

*side note: texting and retweeted came up as spelling errors in this post, a bit outdated, don’t you think?Image
