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.
