Twitter and me
Twitter is a social network that gives you the ability to communicate with other educators from all across the globe. However, judging from our quiz we took it was not as effective as it could have been. The computers in our classroom are out dated and slow. Most of them still run on Internet Explorer, which don't have the capacity to run TweetDeck or google drive. This was a huge hassle that left me furious, because Twitter updated so slowly that by the time I could see a fellow class mates tweet it was four or five minutes old and we had moved onto a new question. In our classroom situation it would have been easier to just talk and communicate face to face with other students. I discovered that twitter was more problematic than it was helpful. I didn't use Twitter before this classroom, because I don't feel the need to talk about myself that much. When I teach in the future, I don't plan on using a lot of technology for the fact that when it's not running well it wastes time.
