I will be presenting with fellow principals Jessica Johnson and Curt Rees on Monday, February 4 at the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators (AWSA) Elementary Principals Conference. The topic: The Why and How of Twitter.
Here is a video I prepared explaining how to use Twitter as an educator:
It is critical that we explore why and how we use social media (or any new concept) first. Setting the purpose makes learning the basics much more relevant and engaging. See Simon Sinek's Start With Why for more on this thinking.
The three of us plus Jay Posick were also featured in ASCD Express recently about using Twitter to cultivate a personal learning network (PLN). I can attest to the growth I have experienced with Jessica, Curt, Jay and the rest of my colleagues being a part of my collaborative learning community.
