If you do not have a professional learning network or PLN via Twitter, I sure hope you start one. My best professional development is gained from Twitter. Not only is there a multitude of resources, you can obtain them on demand when it fits your schedule. You can follow and be followed by fellow educators; which is inspiring and rejuvenating. Taking part in twitter chats is an immeasurable experience. You can just lurk (watch the chat) or participate. Either way you can secure contacts and obtain relevant information and ideas.
I recently was tweeting among my Tweeps (Twitter peeps) and had an idea that has grown into a App Smash contest; which is being supported by Tackk! All because three educators connected on Twitter.
Check out the #YouveBeenAppSmashed Challenge HERE. I hope you challenge yourself professionally to use Twitter to its fullest potential and to smash some apps! Stretch yourself this summer!
