Twitter (social media) Pro Tip: Go to any resource that you sign up for with as much purpose as you can apply. We can talk for days about how to use Twitter (the tool), but without a specific purpose about how you'd like to use it excitement and motivation will fade very, very quickly There is no better place for self-paced/asynchronous professional development for me. Every time I log in I find resources to bookmark and/or share.
Twitter works really well for me and I hope it can work just as well, if not better, for you.
More posts to come in the "What Works for Me on Twitter" coming at you soon!
