Tweet Your Way to Professional Learning with Twitter

Professional Learning does not always have to happen in a formal setting. Some of the best ideas for teaching and learning come from other professionals while participating in Twitter Chats. In this professional learning scenario, there is no loss of instructional time, no substitute teachers to plan for, and there are no travel fees incurred! Anyone can participate from anywhere on any device -- all you need is an Internet connection.

The Birdville Digital Learning Team hosts a weekly Twitter Chat each Tuesday evening from 8:00-8:30 PM. If you are new to Twitter, or to view the archives of previous chats, visit the Twitter resource page at http://schools.birdvilleschools.net/Domain/5344.

In the video that follows, Mary Hadley and Tosh McGaughy, from Smithfield Middle School, share how they have benefited from participating in the weekly chat. You too are invited to join in the learning! @birdville_dl #bisddlp
