Twitter Summaries are a great way for students to paraphrase and summarize content. If they are reading a piece of text, they can summarize each paragraph in a tweet (and even create their own related hashtag). Or even if the teacher is going through a presentation with the entire class, students can be given time during the presentation to turn each slide of content into a tweet. However you choose to use them in your classroom, Twitter Summaries will bring a modern spin to the process of summarization and note taking.
