Yesterday afternoon when checking TweetDeck, I noticed @MrsAngell from Brisbane, Australia was looking for some advice on the benefits of using Twitter for language teachers as part of a training session she was giving on personal learning networks the following morning.
Wanting to help, I suggested I Skype in at midnight and talk to her delegates about the wonderful ways UK MFL teachers have been harnessing the power of Twitter and the benefits they have found for improving their own professional development as a result.
I was delighted to see when I got up this morning and launched Twitter on my iPod Touch that I had received many follow requests from the LOTE teachers who had attended the session. I duly approved and added them all to my World Language teachers list and wondered if they would find Twitter as useful as we have in the MFL Twitterati!
Hope you enjoy listening to the conversation too and you find the tips helpful.
