Twitter - My Virtual Staffroom!

Funny thing about Twitter, you either love it or well, snicker at it! I must admit, I once thought it was a trivial tool...who cares about what I've had for breakfast? But that's not it at all!  I now consider it to be one of the most valuable and powerful tools, that I use for personal and professional development. 

Twitter is my virtual staffroom! It helps me keep up with the latest trends and ongoing professional discourse. A quick skim through my tweet thread can lead me to more relevant Professional Development than a day or two sitting in a workshop. This online community provides me with a unique opportunity for quality learning that is ongoing, timely, interactive and personal. It is where I find great links, resources and ideas. It's where I share my work, communicate and collaborate with amazing and inspiring people from around the world! 

While I continue to build my network, I enjoy following and learning from:   @dougpete @Stephen_Hurley @shareski @cybraryman1 @tomwhitby @heidiSiwak @tonyvincent @techieAng @acampbell99 @royanlee @SNewco @whatedsaid @web20classroom... 

If you’re resisting Twitter- DON'T- give it a try. Open yourself up to the possibilities of what a professional online community has to offer. You won’t regret it. 

Tweet Soon!
