I joined Twitter about a year ago and used it sporadically. With the launch of Exploring the MathTwitterBlogosphere I have decided to re-immerse myself in the experience.
Tonight I participated in my first “chat” —–> #alg1chat. It was very exciting and a little overwhelming! People were very welcoming. The amount of information flying through 140 characters at a time was impressive!
In about an hour I learned about:
- A really neat student-response-system website: http://www.socrative.com
- A wicked cool app using dragons, games and algebra: http://www.dragonboxapp.com/
- A foldable idea for literal equations
I also found more math teachers to follow on Twitter and more math blogs to read! Looking forward to participating next week!
