Twitter and work placements

Lilian Soon posted  a comment on the UK Web Focus blog  about using Twitter to help students on work placements:

“before sending students off on work placements, ask someone at the workplace (a mechanic, a florist, etc) to Twitter regularly throughout the day. This gives the learner some idea of what someone in that job role has to do throughout a day, and it gives them the opportunitiy to ask some questions. When the learner goes on work placement, they could use Twitter to log their tasks and thoughts.”
