Thousands and thousands of educators around the world have grown by leaps and bounds professionally by getting connected on Twitter.
Of course, it’s not the app that helps them grow. It’s the connections, ideas and people that they find there.
I’m the same way. I very proudly claim that Twitter saved my teaching career. It gave me a lifeline at a time when I was in a serious rut and was considering leaving the profession.
Thankfully, the education “Twittersphere” is a pretty supportive one! We all like to help each other out and answer questions, and we’re AWESOME sharers.
How can you make the most of Twitter as a teacher? Check out the podcast episode below for four quick tips to help you enjoy your time on Twitter, make the most of it and help others, too.
