Interesting post over at ZDNet regarding Twitter in education.

More than the content of the post I think it’s useful in reminding practitioners (and IT managers) that technology is not, in and of itself, good or bad, it’s how we use it.

If Twitter can be used to take a quick poll of students without installing any fancy software – why not?
