Tweeting Surgery recently posted this story of a surgeon who Twittered during a complex surgery.

It make me wonder how I might use Twitter as a teacher.

Any ideas?

Wow! It is unbelievable to me how technology is so integrated into our society! When I first started reading this article, I was thinking how irresponsible that doctor was being, but after I gave it some thoughtt- his idea could be extremely useful to so many people! I am not going into anything medical for my career, but how amazing it would be for future doctors or even current doctors to learn through a doctor not just retelling the procedure, but actually writing about it as it was happening. Teachers should probably focus on their classroom while teaching, but if this doctor could take time out, so can teachers. There has to be interesting ways to use tools liek Twitter while teaching to help others in the field.
