It’s important that we as teachers understand Twitter as our students are using it as one of their main means of communication. But, more importantly we should be using Twitter to learn, collaborate and improve as educators. By expanding our Personal Learning Networks (PLNs), we will be better able to address the challenges of educating our students.
In Learning by Heart, Roland Barth pontificated, “I wonder how many children’s lives might be saved if we educators disclosed what we know to each other?”
Twitter enables use to tear down those walls and to openly communicate.
I hope you’ll join millions of other committed educators and me on Twitter. Looking forward to learning from you.
