My PLN ParticipationMy PLN ParticipationTwitter has been able to provide me with a supportive community ofeducational experts and technology professionals from all over theworld.The focus of my Twitter account has been with k-12 educators withdifferent specialities not only limited to sciences; many technologicalinnovators/specialists in education; and educational support programs(i.e. Education Rising, Safe Schools, Eye on Education and 21stcentury teacher)I think that people I’ve followed so far will be useful as I am personallygrowing in the educational field. With the wide range of not onlyexperts but other educators, I feel that I have a support system where Ican seek advice, resources, tools, websites, games and much more.
