Find Your Twitter PLN: An Edchat Love Story

Twitter for teacher professional development? You bet! Teachers have been connecting on Twitter through live Twitter events called edchats, where they can collaborate, mentor/be mentored, discuss education, and share resources. This session will help audience members navigate the Twitterverse to access quality professional learning and build their personal learning network (PLN). We will also discuss resources to moderate, analyze, and grow edchats as well as the potential impact of edchats on teacher professional development.
