Thank you to Margaret for this link up for Digital Literacy!

The connections that I've made on Twitter and by blogging have been invaluable! These connections have made me a better teacher!

The details are below...

  1. Great that you are bring Twitter chats and PLNs into your area. You are a true teacher-leader. Good luck!

  2. Michelle, it is wonderful that you are spreading the news of being a connected educator. I am having a difficult time signing educators up for Twitter chats on Long Island. #NYEDChat meets tomorrow night at 8:30 pm EST for a discussion. I will invite you to several connected ed sites for you to pass on the information.
