Twitter as a starter or plenary?

A bit of a follow up from my Facebook profile template.

I’ve used Twitter live in the classroom before, I really like the need for students to think carefully, and prioritise, the text they use. But we don’t always have net access -so as with the Facebook profile, I’ve produced a template on PowerPoint, I’ve orientated the slides to portrait, looks better and there is more room for students to insert text.

I thought this could be used to summarise the main learning points of a lesson, the key points made in a video, or the most important facts to remember about a case study. You could also use it creatively for a character/place/process within a lesson.

I also liked the idea of using the Twitter template as a more formal starter or plenary, so produced this guess the Twitter user template, I’ve animated it, so people only need to change the text. Both can be downloaded from Slideshare.
