#Twitter Chats - A quick Google search of educational Twitter chats will land you with more opportunities to connect and collaborate with other educators than you could explore in a lifetime. Check out this Learnist to find a sampling. Educational Twitter chats are excellent because they are a great way to be exposed to innovative practices taking place in classrooms across the nation. Avid Twitter users are discovering rich professional connections through their PLN. Even though the majority of learning and collaborating takes place on-line, these connections are so deep that if and when these individuals meet face to face they interact like they were lifelong friends. I have had the opportunity to experience and observe this phenomena occurring first hand and am convinced that these digital connections create strong relationships. Twitter is a great tool for spreading a revolution. Like any revolution, those in the center of the movement are full of passion and their enthusiasm is very contagious.
