Twitter Continuum

Where are you?

I accept my role / hope others experiment and find their comfort zone.

Twitter = Empower

What drives you?
My goal today is to provide a a different "flavor" to education.

I want to share with you a tool that can enhance your pedagogy, invigorate your career, become "game changing."

Twitter empowers its users.

Twitter can help guide / drive / empower you to your next level of teaching.
