February’s Best Tweets — Part Two (and a little late)

| 0 comments

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 (and sometimes I’m a bit late).

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 Twitter profile page or subscribe to their RSS feed.

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

“Detroit Public Schools Face ‘Draconian’ Cuts” NPR

“Why Your Boss Is Wrong About You” NY TImes

“Could “micro-charters” fuel charter-school growth?” (This is one of most bizarre school reform ideas I’ve heard of..)

“An ingenious way to get kids to eat healthy: Give cafeterias a psychology lesson” Boston Globe
