You Know The Feeling…

You know the feeling.

What you feel when you see your child after too much time away.

What you feel when you start a new book and your hooked with the first few sentences.

What you feel when you walk on the boardwalk as a 7-year-old when you catch a glimpse of that roller coaster way up ahead.

What you feel when you’re almost near the “finish line”.

What you feel when you find the “perfect pair of jeans” ON SALE!

Your heart beats a little faster. You move a little quicker.  And you’re smiling–though you probably don’t even realize it.

The ANTICIPATION.  The RUSH.  The mental HIGH.

That’s how I feel every time I log onto Twitter. Whether it’s a quote, infographic, or something new to take back into the classroom, it’s the same feeling.

And boy, does it feel good.

Here are my top 10 takeaways from Twitter THIS WEEK!

10.  Answer Garden: Digital scribble space. Using 20 characters or less, you can use this as a Q & A forum for students or brainstorm session. Quick and easy!

9. A link to an incredible book club for summer reading: For those interested feel free to join the #satchat book discussion on Digital Leadership edmo.do/j/4xswdm #ACretreat14

8. If you want to update your resume, prezi is the way to go for educators. @techgirljenny has an AMAZING resume for ideas.

  1. What a week for sure! I think my first blog post was just 6 days ago, and now I’m inspired to continue by you & others that have offered support! You’re right, the anticipation & mental high are amazing & inspiring feelings. This week on Twitter I’ve also been reminded of the importance of being connected, being a leader right where I am, and knowing when to “unplug” from tech!

    1. Thanks, Jen! I love that reminder of being a leader right where you are…Thanks for taking the time to read my blog! Hope you have a fantastic week!
