If you're looking for great resources all in one place, that are already organized for you Pinterest is a great place to start. You can create an account and simply start following boards. If you have a Facebook account, you can link your Pinterest account with it in order find friends that also have Pinterest accounts.
I've created an LTUSD Pinterest Account with a plethora of boards. You can find the LTUSD boards here.
If you'd like help setting up a Pinterest account, have questions about Pinterest, have an idea for an LTUSD board, or would like to be added as a pinner for one of the LTUSD boards please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're better together!
I was introduced to Twitter this past summer and was blown away by the number of educators and the quantity of educational resources on Twitter.
I'd HIGHLY recommend creating a Twitter account and start following people. There's a board on the LTUSD Pinterest account here with a bunch of resources here.
One of the best things I did was follow a chat just to see how it worked. I didn't participate other than sit and read what others were saying. This is referred to as 'lurking.' I now know you should still follow protocol and introduce yourself even if you don't participate any further than that but if you don't, no one will know other than you! Unless you decide to chime in on the conversation. If you're interested in checking out a chat on Twitter, the California Ed Chat is a great one on Sunday nights at 8 pm. But you can always check out the calendar here for other education options.
