Twitter is... a PLN
Transcript of Twitter is... a PLN
"And, honestly, I wasn't reading for pleasure that often. I got out of the habit of reading and I'm not really sure how or why. After connecting with a few other educators on Twitter who were avid kid lit readers, my reading life has changed considerably. (Bird walk alert! If you are not on Twitter then you need to be. I've met some AH-MAZING people that have really nurtured and supported the reader and writer in me. "
-- Kristen Becker, The Buzz from Becker

"I love Twitter because it has expanded my library vision & my world by giving me access 24/7 to supportive, innovative educators. It has changed my approach to teaching & helped me recognize that I may be alone at my school in my unique position, but there are others to reach out to for help! "
