So, I'm a BHS teacher on Twitter. Now what?

More BHS faculty members are beginning to embrace the power of social media for both increased communication with students/parents and for professional learning.

Thanks to Ben Lewis (@benlewis86), we now have a “BHS Twitter Users” Google Form to help locate everyone at BHS that is using Twitter.  If you haven’t entered your data, please do so here.

Twitter is one of the most productive tools that I have used to develop my Professional Learning Network (PLN) over the past 5+ years.  If you’re not on the bandwagon yet, jump on!

To learn more about how to use Twitter for both professional growth and in the classroom, check out these links:

As always, feel free to follow me (@sparacino) for the latest “edtech” and other resources that I come across and tweet about. 
My Diigo library is also a treasure trove of educational resources.  Happy hunting!

Remember our challenge from Will Richardson.  What are you going to do differently this year to help move our school forward and model life-long learning with digital tools for our students?
