More Districts Using Social Media In Classroom.

The Chicago Tribune (3/14, Manchir) reports on the growing trend of schools using "social media and other technologies to supplement lessons, even for very young students." The piece profiles students who use Twitter to write about classroom lessons, "contribute to a classroom blog, make videos for a private YouTube account intended for parents, and write books using computer software." The piece reports that teachers "who use child-friendly blogging programs and social media are finding the tools are becoming integral parts of their classrooms."
