This is my first blog. I was hoping for a brilliant opening but that may take a while so I’m just going to start.
First of all, I am looking for discussions on educational topics. I started using Twitter a year and a half ago and this was the best decision I have made in a long time. I get to talk to people from around the world. These are other teachers who are just as excited about education, libraries, literacy and learning as I am.
This is the best professional development that I have been a part of in a long time. I choose the topics. I choose when I do it. I choose who to respond to. If I don’t find a topic interesting, I move on without hurting anyone’s feelings.
I am attending ECOO conference this fall only because I heard of it from people on Twitter. I want to attend about 4 more that are in the U.S. that will require more planning and funding.
So being an active part of Twitter is no longer enough for me. Today I become a blogger!
