In today’s social networking world, many people use Twitter to access good information quickly. And the editors of eSchool Media are no exception—we rely on tweets from industry leaders and social media-savvy educators to inform our stories and keep us connected to what’s happening now.
But we’re not stingy! We want to share with you, our readers, the education-related tweets that we found most enlightening, helpful, or interesting this week. Each week we’ll post the best tweets of the week for education, so keep an eye out!
We’d also love to hear from you: See a great tweet you’d like to share? Find us on Twitter at eSN_Meris, eSN_Laura, eSN_Dennis, and eCN_Sarah, or leave your find in the comment section below.
