How to use Twitter for Professional Development (PD)

September 29, 2015

This was not at a conference but an in house short presentation at Teacher Day in semester one 2015 at Unitec.

I showed my feed, how to save tweets you want to read later, how inspiring it is and how on a daily basis it keeps you ‘buzzing’ with ideas to use or adapt your lesson on your feet.

There was no Power point or images, just my feed and how to use it.

Feedback from colleagues was positive but again most think I come up with all the ideas I use and tend to ‘sit inside their comfort zone’ rather than get inspired with 5 minutes reading every day.  It does mean you have to be organised and find time in your morning but like doing physical exercise to keep fit every day, Twitter for PD is mental exercise and can be so productive!
