I have a team of 6th grade teachers that are using Twitter classroom accounts to keep their parents and students informed and provide resources to use at home. They have Widgets embedded in their SchoolCenter web pages so their school site is always up to date. I made a small resource page (thanks for the idea/resources @tgwynn) for my teachers here:

I found this link earlier today on Advice for Twittering Educators...I love the first piece of advice...Work out what you want to get out of Twitter. It is so important to remember that you what you get out of Twitter is what you put in.
