So it’s nearing the end of August as I finally publish this post. At the end of the school year, I said I would try and take a break from Social Media, or at least slow down a little, and then start thinking school in August (as per usual).
Well I think the opposite has happened.
I am on Twitter more now then during the school year. I have found a ton of new hashtags to follow, chats (both hour long and slow chats) to join and even co-moderate (#asiaED), and have expanded my PLN greatly. I have been writing on my blog more (a lot of posts percolating in drafts), and more people are engaging with my work too.
Is this a bad thing? I don’t think so. We have more time in the summer as teachers to do the things that we love. Connecting with other educators and growing/learning about new things as a teacher is one of those things. Balance this love, with your other passions and you have a balanced, relaxing, exciting, and fun summer.
So take some time each day and learn something new, connect with someone in your PLN, or share your thoughts on your blog.
