What I Learned From Twitter and Hashtags
Hashtags are an innovative way to connect ideas, themes, and people. It is used as a (by the way, this is what's really going on right now) method to explain the purpose of a post, phrase, or idea. These teachers, Dave Burgess, Kasey Bell, and Jennifer Gonzales are experts at personals connections as well at technological connections. The hashtag allows for easy access to more information on a topic that is easily remembered and easily accessible.
Twitter is fantastic for engagement between students, parents, and teachers. It is easily accessible for almost everyone. It amazes me how simple it truly is to link a newsletter, article, other blogs or website. Matt Miller posted a blog entry on the book list created by Dave and Shelley Burgess. This includes 20 books that are written by teachers and will inspire other teachers about the art of teaching. This resource is perfect for continuing a passion for education. The first book on Miller's list, is Teach Like A Pirate. These educators are well connected with each other, and well connected with their society. More books on the list include:
1. 50 Things You Can Do With Google Classroom
2. Pure Genius
3. Ditch That Textbook
As a future educator, I am all about self-improvement. It is especially important for me to become as prepared as humanly possible before I walk into the classroom on my first day of school. I am fully aware that I will be confronted with situations that are completely new to me. However, I want to be as ready to bite the bullet as I can! By reading these books, I can offer my students a wealth of knowledge from experienced teachers who have been there, and done that! Welcome to the field of education, where there is always room for self-improvement!
