21st Century educators should exemplify how an individual uses digital tools and resources to become a skilled communicator, collaborator, and devoted lifelong learner. As a follow up to the immensely popular ISTE 2010 BYOL session, #tweet. #learn. #lead., Becker, Brueck and Craft return with a Model Lesson that will provide educators with sound pedagogical approaches to integrating Twitter into the classroom learning space. Participants in this session will learn how educators can use Twitter to support student learning goals while effectively modeling the path of the 21st Century skills.

Participants will learn interactively during a focused and intense hands-on lesson that will leave them with an understanding of: How to use Twitter in the classroom for networked learning; How to use Twitter search, hashtags, groups and other 3rd party services to facilitate a classroom activity; Sound pedagogical approaches for integrating Twitter into the learning environment. After the session, participants will be prepared to create a personalized learning network in a virtual classroom space and lead students into a new era of networked learning.none
