The intent of this page is to provide teachers with a list of the “best of the best” educators to follow for 21st century learning professional development, ideas, resources and insights. Which leads to the question: If you could follow ONLY ONE person on Twitter, who would it be? Please leave your answer and a short reason why in the “Reply” section at the very bottom of this page. I’ll then add it to the list!
UPDATE- OK, I realize I don’t have one must follow. I had to add my POWER PLN! Feel free to add yours!
The “MUST FOLLOW” List For Teachers
Please add @ShiftParadigm (Mark Weston) to your list. He works tirelessly to motivate, inspire and connect educators from around the world. Although he claims to be “retired”, good thing for us that he continues to lead thought and practice in education. He deserves this recognition! (@)
@cybraryman1, Jerry Blumengarten, because he is always sharing resources with other educators. His website, cybraryman.com, has thousands of resource pages for teachers, parents, and students.
@hiphughes – I would highly recommend Mr Hughes is a very funny history teacher and prolific YouTuber who tweets a number of teacher and student tips each day. He uses technology to enhance his teaching and even though I’m in higher Ed, I find his tweets insightful and helpful and he also often responds when you reply to his tweets. (@Chapman_Histo)
@BethHouf is a must-follow Principal up in the Show-Me State who leads by example. She is a no-nonsense guide by the side and puts positivity, compassion and love into every Tweet. You will not want to miss one morsel of what she’s cooking up. (@)
Many of my go to feeds are listed above but I noticed one of my recent finds missing from the list @syded06 is a great resource.
@ Lee Parkinson – his blog has so many amazing ideas.
