Tweeting with Parents

Would twittering with parents be a useful way for teachers to
communicate with at least a segment of their "parent population"?
Sixth grade teacher Bill Ferriter thinks so. In this post at the TLN
Teacher Voices blog, Ferriter reflects on the pros and cons of
Twitter use - and several teacher-readers add their thoughts and
experiences. Consensus: It's not a sole solution but in situations
where many families have easy access to Twitter, the
"short-messaging" service could provide a quick, easy way to keep
parents abreast of things without getting buried in email. BONUS
