I hope this post finds you and your families safe and sound. I've never experienced a Category 2 Hurricane before, and hope to never experience it again! Many of us are still in the midst of cleanup, and dreaming of restored electricity and hot water. I'm offering a diversion for you. It's a great time to take some time for yourself, and further develop your Personal Learning Network. Let's see what we can do to get our cohort back on track! In honor of the end of the quarter as well as Hurricane Matthew - I'm repeating the most recent Social Media Activity. Read on and join the experiment.
Connecting with other educators through Twitter changed my life;
it will change yours, too!
Twitter has had such a positive impact that I want everyone to benefit from the amazing resources, encouragement, and connections that are only available if you give it a try. The thing is, you have to try for at least 20 days so that it becomes as natural as making lists and writing plans.......
As soon as you're ready, stick your toes into the Twitterverse. My last post encouraged you to get started with Twitter by accepting a challenge. This time, I'm asking you to experiment with it for a minimum of 20 days. I've got the 20 days mapped out for you and will be right there in your Twitter stream to help.
In honor of the second quarter saying "Good-bye" to Hurricane Matthew, get started with Twitter! If you are an existing user, join the experiment to reignite the networking you began some time ago and support new teachers to Twitter. Click the image below to begin.
