A few years ago, Twitter was where I drew the line when it came to social media use. Well, things have changed! You can read my post about this revalation if you want. Here, I just want to share some resources and let you decide if it's worth your time.
I love using Twitter for the connection, sharing resources, and learning new ideas for teaching, coaching or tech integration. When it comes to tech integration, I can't imagine how else I'd keep up! Everything I share in this post started with Twitter. A connection, a book recommended, an idea shared... Connecte Educators are the best!
Twitter chats are an amazing way to start! My favorites are #satchat, #learnlap, #tlap, #plearnchat, #2pencilchat, #edtechchat, #edtechafterdark (although too late for me to do very often). Check out the Ed Chat list here for more topics and dates. A few hashtags I follow athat don't have desgnated chats are #innovatorsmindset, #gttribe, and #leadlap, and many, many more! You can start as a "lurker" until you feel comfortable or passionate enough to share your thoughts publicly.

The last day of school is May 27, 2016. This can be a blessing and a curse at the same time. Ya! No more homework, projects, conferences, etc. It’s also the time where your kids can get bored and drive you nuts (or vice versa depending on the perspective). This article is meant to give you some ideas on how you can use technology to keep you kids actively learning this summer as well as having fun. I know you don’t want your kids staring at a screen all summer long, so I’ve included educational & fun activities that don’t involve a digital device.
