Yesterday, in our Wednesday afternoon Tech Training, we discussed Twitter and its uses as a PLN (Professional Learning Network). One thing that I wanted to share with everyone is some hashtag(#) resources that you can search to find good educational people to network with and follow on Twitter.
As many of you know, Cybrary Man is potentially the best educational resource out there. If you haven’t visited this site, it is an absolute must! He has a great list of educational hashtags on his page to help you find applicable groups on Twitter.
If you want a simple list, this one is great! Teach Thought is a great resource for educators, and their educational hashtag page is simple and categorized!
I think I have shared this with you all before, but I am going to share it again. This is a top resource created by Christy Cate and Myra Rains at ESC 14. This Prezi includes links to Free Technology Resources that are perfect for the Performance Indicators in CSCOPE. It is definitely worth taking the time to look. You can view this presentation in the player below or by clicking the link below the player to see it in full screen.
Tag Galaxy is an AWESOME visual dictionary. It is very similar to Visuwords; however, it doesn’t label the parts of speech. This would be a great tool for teachers to use when briefly exploring word meaning. Excellent for the visual learners!
I have started working on my LiveBinders for the 2011 school year. If you haven’t checked this out, it is WAY cool! It is just a way to organize your sites just as we have organized units forever…. in our binders. There really are SO many great sites out there, but it begins to get overwhelming, and I hate to email everyone constantly, so I am going to try this. I will continue to update. This is my first attempt. I started with math.
