Educational Chats on Twitter

Twitter brings people together from a world wide audience for educational chats.  Chats are a quick, fun, and inspiring way for us to improve teaching and learning opportunities.  "Cybrary Man's" collection connects you to the conversations, whether you're a teacher, parent, or student.  Good luck; get ready for some fresh insight!

Writing Prompts

ONE word.... 60 second writing prompts.  This is an excellent tool for your students.   Commit to writing with pupils daily in the coming semester, linking reading-to-thinking; it will yield positive results!  This site should inspire kids and enable users to effectively tap technology for positive gains.
