Coming to terms with Twitter<br />‘What started as a few language teachers 'tweeting' about what they were doing has become well over 100 from around the world.  It's quite hard to comprehend having a virtual staffroom of that many people with good ideas and opinions.  It has led to teachers publicising articles on their blogs which ordinarily I wouldn't have seen, I find out about events for professional development that I wouldn't have known about, and it has, without doubt put me into contact with some very influential educationalists who have taken time to give me guidance and advice.<br />Coming to terms with Twitter - Alex Blagona April 2010<br />
