I've shared a few posts here about Twitter. I've talked Twitter to my real life coworkers. I've given presentations at education conferences on the value of Twitter. I've shared with many how my online PLN (professional learning network) that I've built via Twitter is my DrEaM set of colleagues. While I KNOW that you won't understand the value of Twitter until you become engaged in it, let me share some of the tweets that occured recently. I'm removing Twitter names from the tweets ... These tweets are from people I follow (they are not tweeted directly to me) and can be read by anyone that follows that tweeter. ============================================== Tweet = state reading assessment tomorrow - wish us luck! Tweet = Has education changed since the Industrial Revolution? A 2:30 minute video. http://bit.ly/d0ITSa Tweet = When I'm citing a source that is cited within the source I'm reading, do I cite the original or the person citing the original? Tweet = You cite the source in front of you as the person citing the original may have changed it. That is why I try I find the original. Tweet = Make your own handwriting worksheets http://bit.ly/c3npCH I WISH our 5th graders used this Tweet = Collection of web20 tools for schools categorized by type: http://bit.ly/4r22ST Excellent site! Tweet = Hang in there. Things will get better. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Tweet = “Never be afraid to try something new. Remember: An amateur built the Ark--professionals built the Titanic.” Tweet = MUST read 4 parents/schools: Former Bullies Share What Motivated Behavior http://bit.ly/dj6x45 ============================================= If this is mildly inspiring to you and you want more info, PM me. If Twitter still seems like a waste of your time and you aren't interested, that's okay, too. Oh, I'm not an employee of Twitter. I'm a HS teacher in a rural midwest school.
