Thank you for posting this!  I am taking classes for MEd Instructional Technology.  A current assignment is to develop my PLN.  I have been very hesitant to use Twitter.  This has eased by concerns

I really enjoyed this video! We recently did something in one of my classes where we used Twitter as a educational tool and I found that this video really connected with it! Social media is becoming a huge part of our teaching world and it's such a quick way to connect with other educators. Twitter is definitely a tool that I plan to use once I start my career. I thought the "tower" challenge was very interesting as well!

Wow, thanks for posting this video. As a pre-service teacher,  I have never really thought about using twitter as a resource. It is truly neat to see how something starts out so small in an individual classroom and then builds to other places and ultimately skyping with another classroom in another state about what you did. When I become a teacher, I will definitely use twitter to as a resource as well as promote my classroom.
