To Tweet, or Not to Tweet?

14 Oct

Okay, friends. I need your advice: Twitter, yes or no?

I have to admit that I am slightly perplexed by Twitter. Those of you who know me are probably not surprised by that, considering that I still own a flip phone, don’t text, use a paper map… You know, some might call me a luddite, but it’s not true! I’m just highly sensitive to time wasting, and I don’t want to be poking around on the internet while my kids are playing on the playground. Sigh.

Anyway, it seems a bit like Twitter is the place to be these days, especially for educators. What do you guys think? Time waster or fertile ground of discovery?

Thanks for your input 🙂

    Twitter is a fun place to gather resources. I tend to follow other teachers (e.g. Kelly Gallagher, Penny Kittle) and news sources I enjoy reading (e.g. Huffington Post Education, The Atlantic, NPR News). When used appropriately, I’m able to sift the nonessentials to the essentials.

    BTW… I found you! 🙂
