RE: Starting Your PLN on Twitter - A Guide for Teachers #EdTech

Are you a teacher who's new to Twitter? Looking to start an online PLN (or professional learning network)? Because it's so widely used among educators, Twitter is a great place to connect with others, share ideas, and learn from one another. Use these tips to help you get started, and watch your PLN flourish. 

I personally have setup my PLN through my Twitter, Blog, Facebook, and a few other social media sites. I get a lot of great content from my PLN, however sometimes I get the feeling that there is just too much out there and I am missing a lot of great things. A piece of advice offered to me, that has helped keep me from being overwhelmed has been:

"Think of Twitter as a flowing river. Walk up to it, dip your bucket in, and walk away. You'll never catch everything, but see if there is something you caught that you can use."

Making a Silhouette in Microsoft Word

I had a teacher ask me about how to make a Silhouette without using something like Photoshop. There are some photo editing tools online that could accomplish this for a fee. However, if you already have Microsoft Word, this may be a quick and easy way for you.
