Transform Your Teaching Practice with Twitter: Develop a PLN

My colleague Lindsay Karp and I co-presented the following session at Campus Technology 2015.

Many educators use Twitter to create a Personal Learning Network (PLN) to afford them fruitful collaborations and exchanges of resources with other teachers. In this session, you will learn best practices and strategies for developing your own PLN on Twitter.

Educators with a robust, online PLN tap into support and resources on a scale that is not possible in traditional, face-to-face professional development opportunities. At the same, teachers with an online-based PLN learn skills for using the network that they share with their students, enabling them to take ownership of their own life-long learning process.
