Twitter is a great place for singletons who are working in PLCs to find potential partners to learn with and conversations to join.  Unfortunately, many teachers are intimidated by Twitter or fail to see its value.  These short videos are designed to provide teachers with an overview of just how Twitter works and how Twitter can be used to seek out professional partners to learn with.

Wiggio Tutorials


The most effective professional learning communities hold fast to several key practices. They identify essential outcomes with one another. They study instructional practices together. They develop common assessments and reflect on student learning data together. All of these behaviors should be expected of every professional learning team, including those who join together in electronic spaces.


While there are dozens of digital tools that can be used to support these kinds of behaviors, one of the best is Wiggio. What makes Wiggio unique is that it enables several different kinds of interactions between members of collaborative groups. Let’s take a closer look at Wiggio.
