I’ve been tweeting on Twitter for over a year now. I find it’s an amazing place to go for professional growth, development and inspiration. I’ve learned so much from the people I tweet with. I’m amazed at how much my list of followers has grown – and how many outstanding teachers I’ve come to know simply by reading their 140 character tweets. Recently, Kassia Omohundro Wedekind, author of Math Exchanges (coming this fall through Stenhouse), and I sat down to discuss how we use Twitter in our professional lives. You can listen to our short podcast on the Stenhouse blog or here. Please follow us on Twitter – and we will follow you back! I tweet from @bluskyz and @CatchingReaders, Kassia tweets from @kassiaowedekind and Pat tweets from @PatJ222. You can find an extensive list of people to follow on the Stenhouse blog.
How do you use Twitter in your teaching life?
Enjoyed your podcast. I’m amazed by all I have learned through conversations on Twitter. If I need information, advice, or help, my colleagues on Twitter are always ready to help. I like the more global view of education provided by the voices of so many educators around the world. I’m so glad it is summer so I can spend more time reading and learning with so many professionals.
Thank you for sharing such great information on being active on twitter. I recently started participating in twitter thanks to the wise advice of my friend and colleague, Cathy. I am learning so much, I agree this is one resource no teacher should be without! I found more followers right here, thanks for sharing!
