Seems like it was just the weekend.. Oh, it was just the weekend, and a nice long one at that. That must be why Tuesday crept up on me this week. Anyway, there has been a lot of tweeting going on.

All these educators I follow are either getting their last round of tweets in before they dive into the new school year, picking the habit back up again after the summer break, or they are totally impassioned (obsessed?) by their work and how much support they get through social networking.

Keep at it folks.

For now, here is a roundup of some of my favorite tweets of the week:

@Clausvz “Books not waste of space & won’t be until digital book can tolerate sand, survive coffee spill, & have unlimited power”

@wfryer New blog post: Using Blogs and CoverItLive to Discuss President Obama’s Speech

@dawnshrum Just updated the ISTE Eduverse blog w/archive from last week’s episode feat Erin Reilly from Proj New Media Literacies

@gtoppo “Calculators are not magic,” she said.

And, if you read my RT Tuesday post last week you saw the tweet from @TeachPaperless linking to the letter he wrote to his children’s teachers. Well, he has a follow up post this week that’s also of interest.

@TeachPaperless Thinking about teachers & parents: Response (not from 1 of their teachers) to my Letter to Teachers

Feel free to send me your candidates.
