What did I learn from my Personal Learning Network [PLN] on Twitter this week?
1) Email Etiquette from Vicki Davis
How should we respond to all those emails and requests? How do we help parents and guardians? Good advice here from Vicki Davis @coolcatteacher:

Since students don't have Twitter accounts, read the Twitter stream and ask them a "Twitter" assessment question using 140 characters.
3) Why use Twitter? a retweet by Michelle Lewis links to this Seattle Pacific University PD in 2 Minutes:
