Bremen Public School's Teacher Twitter Challenge

Building Your PLN One Tweet at a Time

The goal of this Twitter challenge is to get you comfortable using Twitter as source of Professional Development, and also contribute to the community around you. Twitter connects educators in not only a professional manner, but it also is a quick and efficient way to gather resources and discover new leaders in EdTech! I look forward to moving forward with you as you continue to grow your PLN (Personal Learning Network).
