Interesting day in today’s newspapers – three positive articles about the positive use of Twitter by teaching professionals. I am heartened as it was only last week that I found myself having to defend Twitter in a room of educators. I am very aware that teachers are busy, that they are often overwhelmed by the pressures of the classroom and they cannot see an opportunity in their lives to open the window to this opportunity. I am also very aware of the many who do open the window and wonder why they took so long to join this amazing group of people.
Articles like these in today’s national press (SMH and The Age and again The Age) can serve to whittle away at all the negativity that a few poor users of Twitter create.
