May’s Best Tweets — Part One

| 1 Comment

Every month I make a short list highlighting my choices of the best resources I shared through (and learned from) Twitter, but didn’t necessarily include them in posts here on my blog. Now and then, in order to make it a bit easier for me, I may try to break it up into mid-month and end-of-month lists.

I’ve already shared in earlier posts several new resources I found on Twitter — and where I gave credit to those from whom I learned about them. Those are not included again in this post.

If you don’t use Twitter, you can also check-out all of my “tweets” on my Twitter profile page or subscribe to their RSS feed.

Here are my picks for May’s Best Tweets — Part Two (not listed in any order):

  1. Thanks so much for sharing my post about the ten no nos of teaching with a projector or IWB. While everyone who reads it says they don’t engage in these no nos, I see them everyday with people not even realizing they’re doing a no no.
