  • 6. Some Key Questions:
    • How can I learn what I need to know to teach the students of today?
    • 7. Are there other teachers who feel the same way I do, looking for the same information?
    • 8. Are there resources out there I might be able to start with?
  • Find a Place to Start
    • Find a few blogs to read/follow (lurking is a perfectly acceptable behaviour in blog circles!)
  • Consider using Twitter as a Professional Tool
    • Begin by finding two or three like-minded educators to follow
    • 9. The best people to start with are those who only use twitter as a professional tool. Otherwise, you may end up with too much “noise”
  • There are so many options; Find one or two that are right for you and EXPLORE
