Why Teachers Should Join Twitter

Read

There is a community of networking and collaboration among educators from the U.S. and all over the world that I have missed out on. I jumped right into developing my PLN (Personal Learning Network). If you have been on Twitter for a while and/or have been part of a PLN then this all may sound silly to you. I know many teachers who do not know about the great benefits to using Twitter for professional purposes. I am particularly writing this post for all of my teacher friends and other teachers out there who don’t know what they are missing out on, like I had been. Educators normally have a negative opinion about social networking due to privacy concerns. I am not advocating using social networking or Twitter for personal and non-professional contact with students. I believe that there needs to be a professional line between student and teacher.
