Twick-it: An Encyclopedia for the Twitter-verse

Looking for a fun, quick activity to test students' ability to discern relevant information? Try Twick-it, a "twitter encyclopedia." This encyclopedia accepts entries from anyone (you have to create a free log-in) and they must be 140 characters in length. Interestingly, each person's addition to the twick is added and listed according to popularity. This could be a fun activity for students to express, summarize, and evaluate learning. They could write entries for topics that you are currently studying, or they could rate exisitng entries. I think it has some value as a learning tool. Enjoy!

  1. Hi Kristen,
    Twick.it would like to say http://twick.it/en/Thank-You

    As a father of two young sons which I teach English as second language I would appreciate it a lot to have students explaining topics in short.
