Twitter not for you? Well, there’s nothing like real world experiences to bring a topic to life... and technology often has the answer. Let’s begin by exploring just how much Twitter can add to your Space topic.

Children have to adapt to so many different styles of writing: stories, poetry, information texts, messaging, wikis, tweets – a truly baffling array of old and new ways to communicate. The range of different written and spoken forms means that children have to adjust their language more than ever before. And new technologies come along all the time. Who knows if Twitter will be around or in the same form when the children in your class leave school, but by trying out different ways to communicate, children will learn how to transform one type of writing into another – and this is a skill that will be with them forever.
