In this session participants will set up a Twitter account and then learn how to use Twitter to enhance their individual Professional Development, how to build a strong Professional Learning Networks, and even how Twitter can be used with students in the classroom. This FREE resource can be used for so much more than posting what you had for lunch or following Funny Cat Videos. We need to help students use social media effectively, but first we need to see the value for ourselves as educators. Every week thousands of educators across the world connect and collaborate to discuss, troubleshoot, and reflect on their craft. The people who share your interests, who challenge you to think deeper and explore, become your Professional Learning Network and become resources that support you. Through this workshop educators will learn not only how to use Twitter - and the language behind it - but how to find professional topics that will benefit them, such as project-based learning, standards-based grading, student engagement, PBIS, climate and culture, leadership, content, curriculum, and so much more. Come join us to take your teaching into the 21st century and join the Twitter-sphere! (Presenter(s): Jacqueline Hanlon, 8th Grade English Language Arts, SAU56 Somersworth Middle School, and Becky Patten, Somersworth Middle School)
