TwiHaiku

I can’t believe it: TwiHaiku. You’ve got to check it out! Talk about a new way to bring Twitter into the classroom!

The description from the website is as follows:

TwiHaiku – Twitter Poetry, is a free Twitter application that lets you share your thoughts, feelings, views or ideas about anything in a poetic manner.

Your short verses are reviewed, discussed and rated by broad audience, and moderated selection is uploaded to twiHaiku Twitter page so anyone may subscribe and follow the best collection of free short verse poetry online.

I don’t know why this is so intriguing to me, but it really is. (Probably because it’s another real world example of what we do in the classroom in a way that students “get” <in other words, a way to integrate technology with a purpose…and a fresh focus behind student writing in a “different” format>). Anyway, I had to share…I’m interested to search around and see what it’s all about!
