Recently, my district has become actively involved in using twitter. We are encouraging our staff to use it for professional development and as a way to connect with other educators all over the world. On Friday, I was asked to give a little introduction about twitter to the teachers at my school and provide any tips to get them started with using it.
As I began to think about what I would say and how I would encourage teachers to use twitter, the thing that stuck in my mind was how you can connect to others and the ways you can post and receive answer to questions with a click of a button. As a means to prove my point I tweeted out and asked the twitter world for tips for a new tweeter, and here are some of the answers I received:
I was blown away by the responses that I received, the tips people offered, and the resources and links they shared, and I thought I should pass along this information to others as well. Thank you everyone!
It does not matter how you plan on using twitter, the frequency, or the dedication to it, but the best advice I can give is to try it out, actively use it, be yourself, and enjoy the many people you will be able to connect with! It’s a great opportunity if you jump into it.
