TO TWEET OR NOT TO TWEET, THAT IS THE QUESTION

Posted on December 6, 2010. Filed under: Twitter |

Twitter is an incredible tool for educators that will allow you to:

* Create or enhance your personal learning network (PLN) as a teacher
* Engage your students with a new tool.

With Twitter, you follow the thoughts and comments from other Twitterers, and you have the chance to follow them. By following and being followed, you form a group of “friends” who come together to discuss a particular topic.

Step 1. Get a Twitter account. Go to http://twitter.com/
Step 2. Select only 5-10 people to follow.
Step 3. Here are a few to follow:
@coolcatteacher
@bwasson
@web20classroom
@abcteach
@NAEYC
@K3teachers
You can also go to twitter4teachers to find other teachers to follow.
Step 4. Follow the tweets for a week and learn from your fellow twitterers.
Step 5. Now it’s your turn to get involved. It is time to make your first posts. Remember to keep your tweet to 140 characters. Over time, people will respond to you and, if you have something valuable to share, you’ll be surprised at how soon your fellow tweeters will start passing your comments around.
HAPPY TWEETING!
