Students in a first-grade class at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School in Glen Ellyn, Ill., maintain a daily Twitter feed to inform parents about their day in the classroom and remind them about upcoming events. "It's kind of our class meeting at the end of the day," teacher Jodi Conrad said. "This is really great for reflection." The students also write a classroom blog, create videos for a private YouTube account for parents and use computer software to write books.
