The Power of the Retweet – Building my PLN

2013-10-13 19.04.43 2013-10-13 19.05.36 2013-10-13 19.05.55 2013-10-13 19.06.03 2013-10-13 19.06.13

On this Thanksgiving weekend I find myself thankful for many things: my family, friends, health,coworkers and the opportunity to be a student.  One of the greatest gifts I have taken away from #eci831 is the power of Twitter.  I am not sure about anyone else but I feel empowered when someone I respect retweets a tweet that I thought was important.  Being a teacher can be a lonely and isolating profession. Twitter provides an opportunity to have your voice heard by people near and far.  When I get a retweet from Todd Parr or other people I respect I feel validated.    I am thankful for this validation.

Happy Thanksgiving!
