Russel Tarr is one of my Tech Heros! This man is amazing! He is constantly presenting us with new classtools that we can use with our students. The latest tool I tried was Twister! My students really had a great time, and they learned something!
Twister is a tool that allows our students to make fake twitter pages for historical characters. The form asks for a username, a real name, a tweet, and a date. When you click "submit" your information is magically presented into a twitter-like page complete with a great photo. It's just like magic!
I wish I could show you all of them! They were great! I had my students go and watch short videos on the biography web site to get their ideas flowing.
Thank you Mr. Russel for this great classroom tool!
