At first I have to admit, I was completely skeptical of the purpose and the reason to even be tweeting. I didn't understand all that it had to offer-but thanks to Michelle, Cathy and Dana-some of the first people to inspire me and follow me, I got started and got going with Twitter!
Right now, I am using twitter to grow professionally. I find book recommendations, hyperlink recommendations and fantastic ideas that help me in my quest as a lifelong learner. I am inspired weekly by a team of people who participate in #1stchat each week...and other people like the Nerdy Book Club members who tweet great info about books and strategies to inspire readers.
Most recently though, I have been inspired by a principal, Mindy Higgins-who has worked to build a culture of literacy in her school by giving daily book talk recommendations over the PA. To find out more about this click here. This is fantastic! I shared her idea with my school and we are going to come up with a similar plan for changing the culture of literacy in our building. Thanks for the inspiring tweet Mindy! The principal is definitely the secret sauce!
So, dream of the possibilities! Wonder, how can 140 little characters have the power to change the course of learning...join twitter as part of your professional learning network and find out!
