Tweeting Adventure

This is what the Twitter chat looked like (click to enlarge)

On Friday at 12, we connected with two classrooms through a quick Twitter chat. Cameron and Nikitah J volunteered to be our tweeters and they did a fantastic job representing @Room16Parkvale. They were chatting with @Rm1HNS from West Auckland and @Room2Smarties from Whangarei. Here is one minute video capturing Cameron and Nikitah on Mission Control.

Before we chatted, we had started discussing and generating our own ideas about adventure learning. We had looked at this video from  NZ Adventure Learning which happens to be Simone Gentil's blog, who is the teacher of Room 2 Smarties. Her students certainly knew what Cameron and Nikitah were talking about! The video is taken from the movie Up.


  1. Wow Mr M!
    What a great post.
    Nikitah and Cameron are doing a great job in that video.
    They look as if they are really enjoying.
    And really starting to learn about tweeting.
    That video is funny about UP!
    And I like the idea of making an adventure book.
    I hope we get lots of things in it.
    Well done, Great post:)

  2. Tweeting and talking to all the other schools look so fun!
    I can't wait to start our Adventure Learning!
    Well done:-)

  3. Cool Mr M,
    Tweeting to other schools look really fun.
    Nikitah and Cameron did a great job in the video.
    I like the video about up.
    The adventure book looks fun.

  4. Hey Room 16!
    We liked how you said that friendship is a good thing. We think your words were very true about friends. A lot of the people at our school are friends just like you.
    What do you like to do with your friends?

    We look forward to commenting on your blog again soon. Thanks for leaving so many comments on our blog last week.

    1. Hi Amber and Battool,

      Thanks for the comment. I have been on Twitter for almost two years. I have only been really using it in this last year, after getting into it at a big conference. My class got a Twitter account part way through Term One so we could tweet our American pen pals.

    That movie is funny! Have you seen it ?
