Are you searching for resources or ideas to help in your position? Do you have a personal learning network established yet?
Learn about some ways to use social media to find resources and get connected to other educators who share your passions!
In the past teachers were limited to seeking out advice from their colleague across the hall or a department chair during lunch or after school. Now teachers can use a variety of social media tools and apps to find and tap into the collective knowledge of educators near and far for new ideas, resources, and ways to hook and engage students in academic learning. Learn about a variety of ways to expand your professional learning network and revitalize your teaching with a little help from a global line-up of educators.
