Mr. Tallent has setup a Twitter account for parents of his upcoming 2009-10 fourth graders. This will be the quickest way for you to get breaking news affecting our classroom, i.e., unanticipated, last minute kinds of things.
Go to www.twitter.com/MrTeacherman for a look. You can check this site throughout the day via your computer. However, the most effective way to get information is to create your own Twitter account and sign up to receive text message updates from me on your mobile phone.
More on this and other technology later.
