Searching WordPress for Twitter in the Classroom

I was reading a post at the wordpress blog about how to search on wordpress – very useful information! They have updated their search engine so that when you search on wordpress you get the very latest posts on that topic as the first listed on the search results. Wanting to test this fabulous idea, I typed “twitter in the classroom” into the search engine, and lo and behold, my post was at the top of the search results! While there however, I found some great other posts on using Twitter in the classroom:

The amount of information that is at your fingertips through these searches is truly amazing. You need never reinvent the wheel or try anything alone ever again! Just search it on wordpress, twitter and google and you will find yourself flooded with information (in all likelihood, way too much).  Finding the time to do the research about what others have done before you is the real trick!
