By Victoria Olson, Grade 3/4 Teacher
In the Summer of 2013, I thought I had already found my professional development mecca as a teacher. It was Twitter. As crazy as it sounds to those outside our circle, teachers all over the globe use social media to connect and collaborate to further their professional development. From Twitter chats where conversation revolves around a common hashtag, to Google+ groups that focus on specific learning styles or projects, social media has helped me forge several professional relationships and friendships with educators all over the world over the last two years.
