Creating a PLN

Look for fresh ideas for your classroom? Want to know what is working for other teachers in your subject area? Don't limit yourself to what your neighbor next door is doing. Open yourself up to the whole world!

Use TWITTER!

Now before you shake your head, Twitter is not just about following your favorite movie/TV stars. There is a whole educational world full of great ideas!

Hashtags

When you see a # in front of a phrase, for example #oscars14, this is how people tag their tweets. If someone else is looking for information on twitter about a certain topic, they can search for #subject and everything with that hashtag will show up.

There is so much to Twitter and how you can use it make your classroom the best ever. If you would like more information, please let me know. If there is enough interest, I would even be willing to host a workshop on this. It's amazing all the great resources that are free and ready at our fingertips. We just have to know how to find them.
