This puts an updated twist on the typical icebreaker or get to know activity. I give the students the option of a hard copy or electronic copy. I post 5 students Twitter pages on my "Twitter Wall" and each week I change them out. When students have some free time in class, they have the option of looking at the Twitter wall to get to know their classmates. On the first day of school, I always introduce myself through my own “Twitter Page” (which I create as a PowerPoint). This is an editable introduction activity that can be changed to fit your needs!

I give my students the option of creating either a Facebook or Twitter!
