I have been using twitter professionally as a teacher for a year or so now. Sometimes it gets pushed to the background, but it always comes back. Recently I've started following companies and people involved in the outdoors and are starting to see the benefit of twitter to help with the life work balance.
If the truth were told I'm a bit of gear geek. I love going into Outdoor stores, looking at the latest cloths and gadgets. I started following a couple of companies and love their posts on their latest gear and what people are doing with their gear. I've even shown some of the more inspirational posts to my students. It helps to remind me that you work to live not live to work and as technology blends work into homelife why shouldn't a little bit of homelife flow the other way?
Some of the best PD discussions are had in the staffroom over a coffee. My posts are intended to be like one of those conversations. Feel free to join the conversation, we just might help each other out. My opinions are my own.
