Seeing as it’s thanksgiving, I am thankful for my family, my health, my faith, education, and Twitter. Twitter? That doesnt seem to fit but I think I am on the verge of being a twitter addict.
When I used to hear the words “twitter” or “tweeting” I thought they were so pointless because up until a few days ago, I thought people, such as celebrities, posted every second of their life and people followed them. I didn’t realize the enormous educational learnings that take place on Twitter until I joined and started following educators. I am now following educators, humanitarian organizations, past teachers of mine, and people that are huge mentors to me in my leadership and my faith. The people I follow are full of knowledge and I am learning ways of teaching, ways to end poverty and ways to strengthen my faith. The idea of networking with others around the globe still fascinates me, but I think by sharing resources it will make us all better teachers, and ultimately better people. I even downloaded the Tweetdeck which allows me to organize my account and I find myself checking twitter occasionally to see what articles have been posted, or what insights have been shared. Thank you Alec Couros and ECMP355 for introducing me into the world of Twitter!
