Using Social Media to Connect with Other Educators: Expanding Your Personal Learning Network

November 11, 2016

If the teachers down the hall don't want to collaborate (or even if they do), use social media to expand your personal learning network. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed the different forms of social media they use to connect with other educators and the different purposes for each. Teachers also shared how they collaborate with other educators via social media and how they connect their classroom with others. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.
This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about using social media to connect with other educators. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed the different forms of social media they use to connect with other educators and the different purposes for each. Teachers also shared how they collaborate with other educators via social media and how they connect their classroom with others.

Read through the chat below for ways to expand your personal learning network using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Voxer. You'll get ideas about sharing student writing through blogs, sharing books through Global Read Aloud, and sharing discussions through student Twitter chats. You'll also find out who's looking for opportunities to connect their classroom with others.

Hope you'll join us next Tuesday November 15th at 8pm EST to talk about online book clubs. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, resource links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
