chirped the kindergartners in Jennifer Aaron's class last week, as they settled onto the multicolored carpet and began to consider what they would like to send out into the Twitter universe that day.

Three days a week, as the school day draws to a close, the children in Ms. Aaron's class sit down to compose a message about what they have been doing all day. They then send it out to their parents and relatives through Twitter, the stamping grounds of celebrities and politicians, where few kindergartners have been known to venture.
Ms. Aaron began the experiment this year with her class at Public School 150, an elementary school in TriBeCa, where every classroom has a Smartboard, a kind of interactive whiteboard, and all the fourth and fifth graders work on their own laptops.

The inspiration for our "I Have a Dream" exercise was the work done by Jennifer Aaron, a kindergarten teacher at PS 150 in New York City. Aaron uses Twitter to send out weekly recaps of classroom activities to parents and other family members. An article (and accompanying video) on Aaron in The New York Times at first sparked debate and concern among some teachers-isn't Twitter a more appropriate platform for adults, not 5-year-old children?


What’s Working: Tweets as Tools | District Dialogue

Because so many children answer their parents with a shrug, "I don't know," or a "nothing" when asked what they did in school that day, kindergarten teacher Jennifer Aaron decided to let the parents know what the school day was like herself - with a tweet.

Aaron's technique gets the children to focus on the day's activities and work together to compose a tweet, which she then sends out to her network of followers that consists of parents and relatives. The kids connect with each other, Aaron and their parents; the parents connect with Aaron and their children; and Aaron connects with her students and their parents. If that isn't the very goal of social media - connecting people with content and people they care about - then what is?

All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten: How to Use Twitter From Kindergarten to College | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning

At Public School 150, a technologically sophisticated elementary school in TriBeCa, kindergarten teacher Jennifer Aaron engages her class in a group tweeting effort three times a week. Family members of the 2012 class were encouraged to follow her private account, @JensClass, and to respond to student tweets.

In the video above, Aaron explains how it works:
...
Although they work in very different educational contexts, the ways in which Aaron and Cordell address these concerns with students (and parents, in Aaron's case) share a logic and simplicity that demonstrate to the rule-makers and other educators that there is no reason to be scared of social media when it is part of a responsible, conscious curriculum.
...
The elegantly constructed approaches of Aaron and Cordell prove the old maxim: The simplest solution is often the best.
