5 Fun, Interesting, and Educational Things on Twitter

Before sharing my five favorite Twitter finds of the day, I want to pass along another tip for those who are new to Twitter and trying to build a network of contacts. If you're new to Twitter, don't be afraid to jump into a conversation. If you see an interesting dialogue going on between a few of the folks you follow, simply use the "@" symbol before the users' names and put in your two cents worth. Some of the people I've had the best interactions were started by someone just jumping into a conversation.

Here are five fun, interesting, and educational things I found on Twitter today.

1. An Overview of Teaching Styles from @chrischampion

2. Zoey's Room - Tech Community for Middle School Girls from @cristama

3. Rethinking the Way Schools Use Time from @jluff

4. Bob Marzano's CUE Keynote from @angelamaiers

5. Backgrounds in Web Design: Best Practices and Examples from @styletime
