If you’re capable of accessing and reading this blog then you’ve surely heard of Twitter before (ie. you don’t live under a rock … or if you do, you still get WiFi there). Twitter can be used to follow celebrities, athletes, musicians, or anyone else who cares to post something publicly for anyone to read. Twitter can also be THE BEST PD YOU’LL EVER RECEIVE. I use Twitter (almost) solely to learn more about education, curriculum trends, tech tools, etc. To do this, I just “follow” other educators and those with similar interests in the education world – this is how I build my PLN (Personal/Professional Learning Network). In doing so, I’m constantly being provided with a stream of the most current discussions & trends in education and technology. Great learning – anything, anywhere, anytime.
If you’re interested in developing your PLN via Twitter, check out this blog post by Justin Tarte to get started – 10 Steps For Educators New To Twitter.
