Why I Love Twitter #Chats

Why I Love Twitter #Chats
(as lifted from my my contribution to “Connected Educator Month” found here: http://bit.ly/OXc9QW )

With regard to professional and personal development, I am always looking for the practical, applicable, relevant, personal, inspirational, progressive —- and twitter #chats are all of those things. These #chats, and Twitter, have most certainly breathed new life into my educational practices. They have opened my eyes to news ways of thinking. The people I am connecting with inspire me daily, and for that I am truly grateful. They are positive, progressive, creative, intelligent and professional. I hope they know just how wonderful they are —- & just how much my students, colleagues and I have benefited from all that they have shared.

Overall, these chats make me feel welcome within a community of learners who inspire me to be a better teacher ; they make me want to look at what I do every day in new ways. They also show me what’s possible, are motivational and often point me in new directions. These #chats are organic, flexible and progressive. They are always growing, changing, and moving forward. All that being said, if you don’t already participate in one then I encourage you to do so. If you do, then you know what I am talking about. Together we are better.

Cheers,
Ally
