I LOVE TWITTER for LEARNING, SHARING, & COLLABORATING!
There are so many wonderful ways for teachers to learn collaborate, share, stretch, grow, etc. online. It is important to have a PLN. What is a PLN? Here is a great article about how a PLN helped a teacher who was experiencing burn out: How My PLN Saved My Teaching Career.
Social media is an amazing way to find fresh ideas and build relationships with colleagues beyond the walls of our own schools.
Twitter is my favorite place to collaborate with other teachers.
