I am doing some background reading on examples of where Twitter has been used in a classroom or lecture room setting. I have seen it work tremendously well at conferences - the instant feedback, ideas and resources flowing from fellow Moodlers at the recent Moodle Moot in London was quite remarkable to see and I expect something similar at the next Moodle Moot in Melbourne in July. Are there colleagues out there who have tried using Twitter in a UK schoolroom setting?

This is an interesting feature on where Twitter has been tested in a US university History group

If you have tried Twitter please let me know of your experiences!
