This method may seem like a huge ordeal for shy students who are uncomfortable with the whole class staring at them. Being terribly self conscious and lacking the confidence to speak out in the classroom, the shy ones simply keep quiet.

Technology in the form of Twitter has come to the aid of such students, who can just tweet their questions and have them answered.

This study from Southern Cross University has found that Twitter can indeed give a shot in the arm to education methods and help students look beyond the barrier of low confidence and shyness to remain better informed.
