I have said over and over again that Twitter has revolutionized my professional development and learning. Twitter is a tech tool that I use everyday professionally and, I have even started to use it with my students. This past spring my eighth grade students initiated three different Twitter discussions about To Kill a Mockingbird. Twitter allowed students to extend classroom conversations and collaborate outside of the classroom.
Last week I taught a workshop to teachers in my school district on Twitter for Educators. Whether you are new to Twitter or have started to get your feet wet with this social media, check out the resources below to help you utilize and learn about the potential Twitter has to offer.
