Tweety Bird Challenge
1. Follow an edhead (check out the list linked above).
2. Search by hashtag- let's start with #esc17! What have people tweeted about today?
3. Search by hashtag #TCEA2015 and retweet something you like or could use later, make sure and hashtag with #esc17!
Twitter is a GREAT way to attend conferences while you are at home.
4. Find a chat you are interested in attending and tweet it out! #esc17

Artistic icons are a valuable aspect of education. No matter how old or young your students are, they will love searching for the perfect pic and adding age appropriate links that demonstrate mastery. ThingLink is a fun way to formatively assess for any subject area, and then can be used for peer teaching. What a concept! Learn how your students can create a few of their own favorite ThingLinks!

What Is Scoop.it?
Scoop.it is a content curation platform, where users can curate information about any topic they want. Once you sign up, you will be able to create a topic of your choice (no limits) and start curating information. The site is geared towards providing users a very quick and easy way to “scoop” any information that you feel is relevant to the topic you have chosen. There are several ways you can do this, the easiest being via a drag and drop tool that you add directly on your browser.
