Twitter is a great tool for sharing resources, understanding what’s going on in other settings and getting peer to peer opinion and advice as well as showcasing what you’re doing.
Lisa Pettifer, Head of Professional Development, SLE and Teaching School Coordinator at a large secondary school in Cumbria, speaking in a live chat explained this really well:
Don’t underestimate the value/implications of Twitter and blogs within the ‘big pictures’ of edu debate, though. I heard Nick Gibb speak last week, and he admitted that some teacher blogs have influenced government policy.
In the first of a series of posts about how social media can influence what goes on in the classroom, and beyond, we’re focusing on mathematics in honour of World Maths Day. We’ve curated some great accounts to “add” to your news feed.
