Connecting to Mr Ippolito, homework, and other school resources using twitter

Twitter is a powerful tool for staying connected with the friends, news, and resources that matter most to you.  Adults are using it for professional and social connections, college students use it to stay connected to professors, and you and your family can use it to get instant information about Rio Norte Junior High School.  Mr. St. Peter (the Team Thunder science teacher) and I are also posting regular updates to twitter so your family can stay connected to what's going on in the classroom.  You can even get these updates sent straight to your cell phone the moment they're posted!
I have posted two resources to help you.  The first is "a parent's guide to twitter," designed to help you better understand what twitter is all about.  I then posted a step-by-step tutorial for creating a twitter account and linking it to your cell phone. Just like Google, Yahoo, Bing, or any online resources you may let your child use, twitter is a powerful and useful tool that is also a window to the wide world, so it's important for parents to understand twitter before setting up an account.
