As I think about the “busy-ness” that is a part of the teaching profession, the time and energy it takes to be well-prepared and organized for each day and the necessary professional development to stay up-to-date on current practices, it all seems next to impossible. It may be tough to get to a training session before or after school or there may be a topic of interest that has nothing available for training when it is needed or wanted.
I have come to rely heavily on my phone or device to access credible articles, information and professional reading. This generally happens while sitting in my chair in the evenings.
Below I share with you some of my favorite learning sites on both Facebook and Twitter.
