Social Networking for Educators and Administrators.

Learn in Part I how you can harness the power of Twitter for Professional Development, School Communication and Global Networking.

Twitter does not have to be overwhelming, nor a place where you will be inundated with personal statements of strangers.

It is your choice:
Who to follow?
What area of interest?
How much time to invest?
How to filter information?
How to connect globally with experts and eye witnesses?

Become part of the best global Professional Development network for teachers and administrators.
