Who to follow on Twitter? #SundayFollow

As I mentioned last week: Twitter and other social media platforms are a great way to share our great work with parents and the community, but the real power of social media in education comes from communicating, collaborating, and learning from educators around the world. Share your classroom, your ideas, and contribute to the learning of other educators. But most important, if you’re not using Twitter to follow and learn from others, you are missing the point. There are some really incredible ideas coming from educators around the world. To start, follow your colleagues in D90!
