Whenever any new application comes out and the dust settles, the same question always comes out: Besides entertainment, what other purpose can this serve? Luckily, you don't have to worry about that with TwitDoc. TwitDoc has been used in many environments and situations, and can be easily incorporated into your agenda. One area that has certainly benefited from TwitDoc is education. There are an infinite number of ways to using this application in the classroom, and it provides a unique experience for students, which in turn, could increase retention of the material. High school students studying German could upload their favorite experience (written in German) from their trip to Germany. Med students could learn to identify what stage of cancer different patients are in by the video taken by their instructor in the hospital. 5th graders studying the revolutionary war could write and upload a paragraph explaining whether they would be a patriot or a loyalist, and why. TwitDoc is for the public, and how it's used, whether for entertainment or education, is dependent solely upon the user.  As a public site, the social aspect of the classroom is increased.  This social aspect include includes student to student interaction, student to teacher interaction, teacher to student interaction, and teacher to teacher interaction. These multiple forms of interaction can be greatly beneficial in the classroom.  TwitDoc can be adapted to whatever you need it to be, and the classroom is certainly no exception.
