I’m in the process of developing an ever-growing network of wonderful educators from which I can gain new ideas, insights, techniques, and inspiration. This personal learning network is really energizing me for the upcoming year.
In lieu of the traditional Follow Friday on Twitter, I’m going to list these wonderful resources here so other educators can have an idea of what’s out there. I’ll do my best to elaborate on the folks I know better.
I’m also going to encourage all you elementary folks on Twitter to become involved in #elemchat, which takes place Tuesdays at 5 PM EST. It’s a great opportunity to share and get ideas and inspiration around specific topics.
