Twitter in my school?
So I've been thinking lately...how can I become a better teacher while helping my colleagues to become better, progressive educators. (By the way, getting better in my mind is reflecting on and discussing your teaching techniques in order to understand different ideas and approaches in the classroom.) I have heard about staff discussions on Twitter using hash tags, for instance #SHSchat for Springfield High School staff. I'm wondering how to approach the issue with my principal. Should there be prompts for the first few chats? Should we have them weekly? Monthly? After staff meetings? What if it becomes a complaint session? If you have experience with this, please give me some direction. Can Twitter help our staff?
