  • I’ve personally never heard of companies who can produce a paper for you until word got around among my college groupmates. My professor asked me to write a research paper based on a field I have no idea about. My research skills are also very poor. So, I thought I’d give it a try. I chose a writer who matched my writing style and fulfilled every requirement I proposed. I turned my paper in and I actually got a good grade. I highly recommend ⇒ www.HelpWriting.net ⇐

  25. 36<br />“I learn something new several times a day and stay connected with people that form my most valuable network. This is the one tool I would choose if I could only keep one.”<br />“I use Twitter to share my thoughts, ideas, information with others and to learn or get inspired by others.”<br />"A performance support tool, learning platform and social network all rolled in one."<br />
  26. 37<br />Jamie Forrest<br />“The biggest change, I think, is in my confidence and my attitude.  Twitter has opened me up to a world (and I do mean WORLD) of teachers who are doing some of the same things as I am and are paving the roads to new teaching options.” <br />“I found a community of people who validated what I was doing in my classroom while challenging me to try new things.  So, not only have I started to consider myself a grade 3 teacher, but I have started to consider myself a really good one!  This change was obviously noticed by others as well, because I will be mentoring my new grade 3 teaching partner.  Upon finding out that she was teaching grade 3, she approached me for help.  Both my principal and vice-principal have mentioned that they were glad I could share my expertise with a new teacher.”<br />
  27. (c) C4LPT.co.uk<br />38<br />“I've learned more in the last few weeks by monitoring this community than I have in the past year in class..... It's an amazing group - I have seen discussions on questions I hadn't thought about and received pointers towards great articles...... Makes me wonder why I'm spending all that money on a formal education when I'm not learning as much....”<br />“I really "ummed and ahhed" before joining this community. Participating in social media is still a bit "scary" for me - don't laugh!!! But I'm glad I did - I've learnt more in a few days than in the previous 6 months of trying to figure it all out for myself. Another vote for social learning.”<br />
