“In the spirit of social-media-educator friendships, this summer it is time to recognise your most supportive colleagues in a simple blogpost shout-out. Whatever your reason, these 5 educators should be your 5 go-to people in times of challenge and critique, or for verification and support”
There are only 3 rules.
1. You cannot knowingly include someone you work with in real life.
2. You cannot list somebody that has already been named if you are already made aware of them being listed on #TwitteratiChallenge.
3. You will need to copy and paste the title of this blogpost, along with the rules and information of what nominees need to do next in your own blog post.
1. Within 7 days of being nominated by somebody else, you need to identify colleagues that you rely regularly go-to for support and challenge. They have now been challenged and must act and must act as participants of the #TwitteratiChallenge.
2. If you’ve been nominated, please write your own #TwitteratiChallenge blogpost within 7 days. If you do not have your own blog, try @staffrm.
5. The educator that is now (newly) nominated, has 7 days to compose their own #TwitteratiChallenge blogpost and identify who their top 5 go-to educators are.
Here are my nominations in no particular order:
My go-to for secondary education is Disappointed Idealist (@disidealist) who provides entertaining and heartfelt insight into life in secondary school and commentary on wider entertainment policy.
My go-to for primary education is Emma Ann Hardy (@emmaannhardy) who is always unfailingly helpful and insightful.
For primary and an insight into supporting children with special needs, Nancy Gedge (@nancygedge).
For any questions about governors, school management or wider school issues, my go-to people are Shena Lewington (@ClerkToGovernor) and Micon Metcalfe (@miconm)
Not forgetting all the people with who I interact regularly via Twitter, all of who make Twitter one of the best sources of information and debate for those in education.
