Why learn to use Twitter for FPS? To show how twitter shares the positives in our school (like #CelebrateMonday) and to become connected educators with abundant resources available at our fingertips.

Don't See the Value?

It's all about being a connected educator. Here is what the experts say:


Eric Sheninger, author of Digital Leadership says “I think that it has the ability to be a truly viable catalyst for the type of change that’s needed in education. The more people get connected, the more opportunity there will be for voices to be heard, to truly and authentically improve our education here in the U.S. We need a national forum with the voices of practitioners, talking about what will work and what will not, talking about the challenges. Connected education can be a catalyst for meaningful reform that will be embraced.”


Our very own Jan Bailey said this about Twitter: “Twitter developed my PLN in a matter of days! The best PD ever!”

Come on, GET ON BOARD--you know you want to!!!!
