After a fantastic #teacheredchat last night about teacher prep programs, mentoring and social media I added @doccarpenter to my growing PLN. This morning I watched a webinar that he conducted for AACTE it can be found here. This webinar discussed why Twitter is needed for teacher prep programs. I have used twitter in my #educ204toi class as a tool to help them connect and build a robust PLN. Most students really grab ahold and run with Twitter and really develop their PLN.
My notes and thoughts on the webinar are below:
Overall, this webinar is great for anyone who is new to Twitter. I recommend this to those of you who are exploring the use of Twitter in your classroom or to build your own personal learning network (PLN). Happy tweeting!
