Even though Twitter is in its infancy in the classroom, there is no shortage of ideas among educators who have started using it.

"I want to continue next year," says Brigitte Léonard who believes that nothing is impossible. I only have good comments. I would also like to use Twitdraw so that my students can share their drawings and do more projects in collaboration with other classes ”.

Between teachers, we are also inspired a lot. “I'm starting to use Twitter like Jean Doré does,” says Annie Côté. Students write to argue on a specific topic ”. It also refers to a american study focusing on the effects of Twitter on the motivation and engagement of students, who are able to discuss in a richer way about the topics discussed in class.

As for the next step for Sylvain Bérubé, he exclaims quite simply "Give me an Internet connection and I will lift the world!" ". He wishes to renew the experience of ClavEd as well as that of the International Week of the French Language and the Francophonie.

For his part, Jean-Yves Fréchette is categorical: if he returned to class, he would encourage his students to use their mobile device in class. “Since we don't know what to do with these new tools, we tell them that they cannot use them. It is said that schools are under-equipped. Stop: every student has a terminal in their pockets. "

What about technologically shy teachers? Innovative ideas take time to catch on. “For the teacher, it's about creating bubbles of intensity that make others stretch their necks. Twitter allows for short writing, student motivation, ease of use in addition to relevance to the program. For me, it's a winner. "
