Twitter is #Amazeballs but…Facebook!

Be brilliant people - do amazing things!  Then share them with us so we can do them also!

Be brilliant people – do amazing things! Then share them with us so we can do them also!

Twitter is a great resource for teachers, scratch that, Twitter is an #Amazeballs resource for teachers!  I get it though – Twitter is different and scary and one more thing to do.  If you Teach you should Twitter – read here for some of my thoughts.  Or here from Kas Nelson a rural elementary administrator who uses Twitter to make connections across the nation.  You may be more comfortable in Facebook, you may be super comfortable in Facebook…so comfortable you are posting status updates from the clogged grocery store aisle!  If this is you…

If Facebook is your thing and you love it – please consider following the Teaching From Here community page.  This community page has been/will be a place where this blog will be posted.  I have shared things to spark discussion.  I have shared things that are thought provoking.  I want YOU TO SHARE YOUR IDEAS!  Your idea may be the one thing that another teacher needs to see to push them over the edge for an idea they have been thinking about.

Use this page to make connections.  Use this page to share great resources.  Use this page to give us something to think about.  Use this page to connect and share with other teachers who Teach From Here (wherever YOU are).

Sometimes the conversation on Twitter is epic but you need more than 140 characters.  Follow the community page.

Pinterest page with great ideas? Share it here!  Brilliant blog on teaching reading to 3rd graders?  Post it now!  A how to for doing some really cool thing?  Please let us know!

Working together, sharing together, walking through our journey as educators together will be how me make the difference that makes the DIFFERENCE.

So if Twitter isn’t your thing, or even if it is, sometimes you need more than 140 characters – check out my Facebook community and carry on the conversation.  With actual paragraphs if necessary.  Or simply a picture.  Or a link to something epic.  Or anything that we can use to be better teachers for our students.

This community is going to be by teachers for teachers.  I want us to have good great conversation about what we do.

You never know if something like this might happen:

About Scott

My name is Scott. After 18.5 years as a high school math teacher in public education I have made the move to become a full time PhD student. This decisions was difficult, but has been one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done. Teaching in high school was an incredible experience for me, so leaving an environment that I loved for the unknown was a challenge. As I high school teacher, I taught almost every math course that could be offered. I was able to earn National Board Certification in Young Adult Math. I was honored as my building Teacher of the Year, no mean feat at Edmond Memorial High School!! My career changed as I became fascinated with educational technology and all of the things that it can do for teachers. I flipped my class. I used iPads and blogging (in high school math!!). I started using gamification and mastery learning. I changed my practice. I chose to go back to school to learn as much as I could. To bring that knowledge from academia and research to the teacher on the front line. I have had the opportunity to present at several conferences and share what I have learned with others. Its through these connections that we can be the best teachers we can for our students. They deserve it and we sell ourselves short when we don't give it. I love talking with teachers about change. About incorporating educational technology. About the power that they have to change lives. My blog space is me, it shares my passions and frustrations, my joys and my learnings. If you are interested in what I am studying, please visit my graduate school pages. If you are interested in the flipped classroom, I have some links to get your started. I would love to meet you! Do not hesitate to reach out! I would enjoy the opportunity to work with your staff or trade ideas with your teachers - let me know! Have a great day! #BeBrilliant

  1. There’s a great deal that anyone can introduce effectively through Twitter – using links to pieces beyond the 140-character limit AND with well-chosen hashtags. And the Twitter chats – as both of us know – really take Twitter to an #Amazeballs level.

    Frankly, I have not seen a need to use my Facebook page for anything more than keeping in touch with a few friends and family members! Always interested in others’ perspectives such as this one. Maybe some day…
