Twitter for Educators

What is a PLN?
A professional learning network (PLN) is a group of teachers, administrators, and educational leaders you can use for personalized learning and professional growth.  They add on to other forms of professional development, such as workshops and cadre meetings, by providing another perspective and additional resources. There are a variety of tools used to develop a personal learning network from blogs to videoconferencing tools, however Twitter and Google+ are two platforms increasingly used by educators.
