Technology Posts Worth Retweeting

September 01, 2009 1 min read

In the few months I’ve been using Twitter, the microblog has become a very reliable resource for me. Many of the folks I follow have provided an array of insightful, practical, and important resources and ideas related to my ed-tech beat. There are so many great ideas out there—recommended by some real pros in the education world—that I’ve decided to share some each week. I hereby dub this the inaugural Retweet Tuesday for this blog. I hope you find these tweets as valuable as I have:

@TeachPaperless - New Post: A Letter to the Teachers of My Children

@web20classroom - Nine Themes of Digital Citizenship...

@mcleod - THE PUSH: Today we’re looking for excellent secondary classroom blogs

@tomwhitby - If we change the disc[ussion] from wanting Tech in Ed to needing it, we may make progress. “I learned without it and I did fine” is not acceptable

@Eduflack - Using i3 to fill the ed innovation gaps

@AngelaMaiers - Check out -- a huge database of professional development -- a great resource for teachers!

I often re-Tweet Twitter posts that I find intriguing or useful, as do my colleagues here at EdWeek and Digital Directions. You can follow us on Twitter @kmanzo, @digidirections, and @educationweek.

Feel free to send me your favorite ed-tech tweets for next week.
