Gardenglen is the hardest working man in the education business. He never seems to sleep. He is a Science Teacher, but don't let that make you hesitate. He sends out information for all content areas.[/quote] Thanks! I started following him. I'm new to Twitter (still trying to figure out how it will fit into my life) and would LOVE to have more resources. PLEASE let me know good Twitters to follow! Sign in to vote! Posted 1/4/2010 1:29pm Elana LeoniDirector of Social Media Strategy and Marketing @Edutopia, edcamp organizer Staff Here's a list of great PLN builders on twitter to follow made by @bethstill. @bethstill's description: This is a list of 50 fantastic educators who have been the core of my PLN since my early days on Twitter. These 50 were hand picked because they work in harmony together. Leaving even just one of them off will throw off the balance of this list. Sign in to vote!

Posted 2/24/2010 7:47am Gina Vasquez I am new to social media and especially new to Twitter, but as a parent, just found this cool page @Ltlgrnmm... tool for kids to learn about business, fundraising, money mgmt, etc. Their company site (I think it's the CEO) has blog- interesting articles so far on youth esteem, education, and interesting points @delvisionaries.

Posted 2/24/2010 4:25pm Mark MoranCEO of company that teaches students how to use the Web effectively. This is not unlike asking a baseball manager whether he values his star pitcher, shortstop of home-run hitter the most. Fortunately, he doesn't have to make that choice and neither do we. I've found that building a list of people I follow, and continually culling it, to have been a rewarding experience. The lists that Elena and Jill posted are full of terrific people, many of whom I follow. @web20classroom and the star librarians, such as @joycevalenza @buffyjhamilton @shannonmmiller have provided me with dozens of actionable links. And I welcome all new followers @findingdulcinea where we share the best of the Web for librarians, teachers, students and parents. Sign in to vote!
