Twitter in the Classroom
edWebers were “twitterpated” with this month’s TechTools webinar presented by Shannon Holden. In this lively session all about Twitter for teachers, participants learned how to effectively develop their skills and careers in 140 characters or less. The hour long session was full of great ideas and suggestions for any twitter user. Veterans and newbies alike conversed eagerly as Shannon shared tips and tricks for creating an account, getting yourself noticed, and using twitter for lesson plans and student collaboration.
Of course it wouldn’t be a webinar about Twitter without a hashtag. While Shannon discussed the use of the popular symbol, our back-channel (#edwebchat) was abuzz with chatter. Tweeters asked questions, shared ideas, and commented on the webinar; a perfect example of how Twitter and PD go hand in hand. Watch the webinar to find out what all the excitement is about!
