So I’m discovering that Twitter is useful for me as an educator as long as I’m following the right Tweeters. The past couple of days I have been scrolling my feed looking for helpful articles or useful links from an educational perspective. Unfortunately I’ve mostly been finding Regina Farmers Market treats and pictures of geese in Regina’s Wascana Park. These are all neat things for a Regina local to see, but for me looking to use Twitter as a PD tool as an educator, I was looking for a little more substance than a Do Si Donut or a Strawberry Rhubarb cider from Living Sky Winery.
Thanks to Katia and #saskedchat last night, I am now following some wonderful educators with quality education related tweets! Scrolling through my feed today was a different story than it was yesterday. I now see articles and blogs with neat resources, such as this one I found from Classroomqueen. It features 5 of the best digital storytelling apps for kids. I may just have to use one of these apps for my final reflection for ECMP 355.
I’m intrigued with Tellagami, but the link took me to the itunes store, and I use Android. I’ll have to do some further investigating for Android apps!
