Twitter...I'm just getting started. I haven't been actively tweeting, but I have been navigating the site and reading up on others' tweets. A link I found helpful in getting started following fellow educators' tweets is: http://twitter4teachers.pbworks.com/
On a personal level...
I've enjoyed using the Twitter search for specific topics such as the World Cup. I love that Twitter allows me to have contact with native Spanish speakers. Although I wasn't in Spain, I was able to share in the joy and victory of its people. Listening to individual voices and opinions is more interesting to me than reading a newspaper article about it. Although, there were some great links to live coverage on one of Spain's news sites, http://elpais.com.
I predict that I will enjoy following book reviews, tennis updates, and occasionally taking a peak at what Congress has to say.
On a professional/pedagogical level...
I think it will be almost a relief to know how many resources I can be in contact with at any given moment. I've already noticed that people are tweeting links to various websites that can be of immediate use in the classroom. I can't wait to try out some of those sites and see what's out there. I would also like to continue to update my wikispace so I can post it on Twitter for other teachers to use as a resource.
It's inspiring and refreshing to know that there is a multitude of teachers wanting to improve and to use technology in the classroom. I've learned a lot from my colleagues, but this opens up many doors in the world of education.
