love ya team... Go Third Grade!the iPads live in my room so I can use them freely. Anyway...
I kept running across blogs that said "Join Twitter" and "Twitter can help you be a better teacher"
I have never understood Twitter. I have often thought of people who use Twitter as the type that say "Ok I'm leaving the house now" then two minutes later "I'm in the car". I am so not that kind of person.
Then I ran across a website that was perfect for naysayers like me.
Sue Waters taught me how to sign up for Twitter and what this # was all about.
I was sick on Monday so, just like the technology obsessed person I am, I spent lots of time getting to know Twitter and how it works. I basically followed Sue's directions to the tee.
While on Twitter I found these @2guysShow Brad & Drew from Two Guys and Some iPads
I watched their Podcast (first one ever) with Tony Vincent and learned a lot about iPads and apps and other stuff.
I also participated in an #edtechchat about Project Based learning where I learned about some cool apps that students can use when creating projects and the real definition of Project Based Learning. I also learned there are LOTS of smart teachers out there.
In other words JOIN TWITTER if for nothing else than for a little extra free PD with a little fun along the way.
I am learning the importance of building my (I think they call it) PLN Personal Learning Network.
My world just got a little bigger.
Thanks to all of my new Twitter friends!
