Using Twitter to Build Your PLN #shiftingthemonkey
Twitter is an exceptional tool for the self-directed learner, especially educators. This has proven to be a valuable tool for networking with educators around the globe. This week I will be starting a new book study with other educational leaders. Last year, I participated in a book study of What Great Principals Do Differently by Todd Whitaker with principals and assistant principals in my school district. This was an excellent learning opportunity and we met several times throughout the school year. Whitaker’s newest book, Shifting the Monkey, provides another opportunity for a book study! This will be a virtual book study via Twitter! @PrincipalJ is organizing this event. I read chapter one and I am very excited about chatting with my fellow educators that offer different perspectives and experiences. You can join us! Follow me on Twitter and track the #shiftingthemonkey hashtag for more information! This will be a great opportunity to read a great book, help grow yourself as a leader, build your personal and professional learning network, and participate in some lively discussions.
