Forming a PLC on Twitter

When I decided to launch the ESOL Ninja, one of the first things that I did was set up a Twitter account.  I almost immediately engaged in the process of following and being followed by fellow educators and began swapping links and insights.  A few weeks later, I attended an Edcamp session on Twitter and learned that there are education related chats almost every night of the week.  I have been an active participant in the past few ELL and middle school chats and have enjoyed learning from educators from around the world.  So far, I have learned about the curriculum in New Zealand, exchanged project based learning ideas with a start-up founder on the west coast and even had an audience with ELL guru Judie Haynes.  I will continue to participate in these chats as they inspire me to become a better educator and provide valuable professional insight beyond my school's walls.  I invite you to join me.  Here is the Twitter chat schedule.
