Why would I Sign Up for Twitter in Education? 

Many reasons, but here are my big three: 
  1. PLNs: Professional Learning Networks; Twitter is the biggest place educators seem to gather to trade tips and secrets for the classroom. 
  2. Curating Resources for my Classroom: Resources from my library in one place, as well as those shared from others. 
  3. Telling the Story of My Classroom, School, and District
