DR MONICA RANKIN from the University of Texas at Dallas introduced Twitter into her history classroom a couple of years ago.

Here she talks about how successful the idea has been, even though, in her words, “it was going to get messy”.

The lesson for business is clear: if staid organisations like academia can utilise this new technology and have success with it, why can’t your less-than-staid company?

    This is a great way of getting students to contribute to the lesson plan and an excellent way of sharing large amounts of information in a short space of time.

    I wonder what my kids will be growing up with in the classroom! Hopefully kids won’t end up relying too heavily on this form of communication.
