How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

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

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.

I've made many more meaningful contacts through LinkedIn and Facebook. 

Andreas Kuswara's curator insight, April 17, 2013 9:22 PM

twitter alone might not be sufficient, as we (or most of us) not 'always online', we have to do other things. combining twitter with a mechanism to comb through the # and compile personalized feed, would be useful.

I'm a fledgling tweeter but love the way Twitter ignites discussion and ideas within a professional community.

Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners: Building Parent Engagement: Tell Your School’s Story

Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners: Building Parent Engagement: Tell Your School’s Story | twitter for teachers | Scoop.it

Parent engagement has always been a very bright spot on my radar when thinking about keys to success for schools. Lately, it feels important to distinguish between parent engagement and parent involvement. Both are important and something every school should strive for in order to create the most healthy student environment. But involvement, to me, can mean volunteering and spending time in the school and classroom- building those schools that have an instant sense of positive energy you sense the minute you walk in the school.
