It is Tuesday evening and with with work that I am doing with another colleague about Twitter use at school, we were trying to find secondary schools where teachers and students are using Twitter for teaching and learning.
Quick search on Google and not much comes up. Few tweets out using hastags and handles (people) and get retweets, suggestions of who might be able to help and these:
Otaki College Hamlet Project 2013 – click on Twitter Feed.

@SchuKnight not me personally, but our science dept does, they post readings and tweet homework up dates.

Teachers first take on using Twitter as PLN:

— Billy Merchant (@billy_merchant) August 20, 2013
Billy has used it in the past with his Y13 PE class. Tweeting things like ‘Remember your PE gear tomorrow”. Click on the above podcast link.
I love Twitter! It can be so powerful if used in this way! Thanks PLN!!
PS (PLN = Personal Learning Network)
