Tweet 10 Challenge Wrap-up

This past week, we facilitated the Tweet 10 Challenge.  We felt it was a big success and thank all those who tweeted.  Click here to read some of what our WWP community has been sharing out this last week with the hashtag #wwprsd. You don't need to have a Twitter account yet in order to read the tweets.  If you would like to follow fellow WWP Twitter users, here is a spreadsheet.

Twitter can become a powerful tool in any teacher's toolbox for professional development.  For some, it is their number one resource for PD!  Not only can you follow colleagues in the district, you can follow educators and educational resource sites from all over the world.  What can you find?  Links to educational articles and blog posts, lesson ideas, and inspiration.  What can you Tweet? Links to resources you find helpful, successes, challenges, questions, photos, etc.

Here are some other ideas for you to try now that the Tweet 10 Challenge is complete:
  • Get the Chrome extension, “Classic retweet" which will allow you to edit your retweets
  • Do some lurking.  Find something you like and “Favorite” it by clicking on the star
  • Try using TweetDeck, Tweetchat, or HootSuite to set up and follow different chats such as:

#edchat (Tuesdays at 7:00)
#whatisschool (Thursdays at 6:00)
#Tlap (Mondays at 9:00)
