I have just completed my first year on Twitter. I signed up two years ago, but ‘lurked’ for a year because I just didn’t see the point. I thought it was for people tweeting about what they had for lunch. How wrong I was…. Through Twitter I have built up a fantasic PLN (Personal Learning Network). I have learnt more than I ever thought I would, found more interesting links, got new ideas for my teaching and met interesting people. This is certainly one of the best forms of Professional Development for me.
An archive of my live tweets is here: http://thinkedu.net/blog/twitter/
I co-wrote an article on the use of Twitter for History teachers.
