While surfing Twitter today, I stumbled across this conversation on the #edtechchat hastag and was intrigued. Can teachers earn credit for the hours we spend engaging with other teachers across our state via Twitter?
If we earned just one credit per hour, that would account for 50+ hours of professional development in a year.
Read the storified chat below to see what some school districts have done to credit their teachers with the personal time their spending on Twitter to further their professional development.
I am a secondary English Language Arts teacher, a University of Oklahoma student working on my Master’s of Education in Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum with an concentration in English Education, and a NBPTS candidate. I am constantly seeking ways to amplify my students’ voices and choices.
