15 abr 2014 Twitter for Professional Development
In my last post, I focused on giving Twitter a chance.
Before saying No, try a resounding YES! And if I haven´t convinced you last time, how about considering Twitter as your daily professional development hub? For most ELT conferences, there are great tweets coming from the backchannel. Educators who share the resources of the presentations they are attending, ideas, thoughts, quotes.
If nothing appeals to you, PD in microdoses might convince you.
Here´s a list of the conference hashtags I´ve been following lately and also sharing. If you couldn´t be in the TESOL Conference, I was there with thousands of other educators, and some of us shared resources that you might find useful. How about IATEFL last week? Right now, there´s one in São Paulo that I´ve been following with interest.
Choose what you want to follow and simply save your search on Twitter.

So, try Twitter before you ignore it for micro doses of learning every single day.
