“Tweet, tweet, tweet!” chirped the kindergartners in Jennifer Aaron’s class last week, as they settled onto the multicolored carpet and began to consider what they would like to send out into the Twitter universe that day.
Three days a week, as the school day draws to a close, the children in Ms. Aaron’s class sit down to compose a message about what they have been doing all day. They then send it out to their parents and relatives through Twitter, the stamping grounds of celebrities and politicians, where few kindergartners have been known to venture.
Ms. Aaron began the experiment this year with her class at Public School 150, an elementary school in TriBeCa, where every classroom has a Smartboard, a kind of interactive whiteboard, and all the fourth and fifth graders work on their own laptops.
