Another Way To Check Out #BHSCHAT on Twitter - Paper.li

I received an e-mail from one of our students this week who writes for The Devils Advocate, our BHS student news newspaper, asking why I have been publishing "The Day in Tweets on #BHSCHAT" here a few times in the past week.  Here is how I responded to the question:
"The first purpose is to show people who that Twitter is not just used to share meaningless information. I use Twitter for learning and sharing educational information. So this leads to my second purpose which is to invite more people into the conversation and see that Twitter can be used for more than just personal comments and/or conversations."
With this in mind, I also want to share another great curation tool that gives a great look at how Twitter is such a tremendous resource-sharing tool.  Paper.li is a resource that allows people to set up a daily newspaper based on daily tweets. Below is an example of what was curated yesterday from the #BHSCHAT hashtag.  As the paper shows in the top right corner,  the contents in this paper were tweeted over 100,000 times. That pretty much sums up the power and reach of this tool as a source of information for any topic that is of interest.

Enjoy!
