Can Twitter replace traditional professional development? | HechingerEd Blog

Can Twitter replace traditional professional development? | HechingerEd Blog | Twitter for Teachers | Scoop.it

Summary by Carnegie Perspectives

 

"Twitter and Facebook might soon replace traditional professional development for teachers. Instead of enduring hours-long workshops a few times a year, teachers could reach out to peers on the Internet in real time for advice on things like planning a lesson (or salvaging a lesson that’s going wrong), overcoming classroom management problems, or helping students with disabilities. Or, at least, that’s what a group of Internet-savvy educators who convened in New York City this week are hoping."

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | Twitter for Teachers | Scoop.it

TWITTER TRANSFORMS EDUCATORS


Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.

 

Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.

 

Here are some of the specific ways educators are using Twitter to collaborate:
