Tweet, Meet, & Greet



We don’t know about you, but man oh man, we are tired!  Just returned from the annual ASCD conference in Atlanta, Georgia, where we met up with some fabulous peeps from all over the globe; the list is long, and maybe it included you!?

If you were able to join us at our session, Oh, the People You’ll Meet If Only You’ll Tweet on April 2, 2016, we promised to share our twitter resource highlight list.  Voila – here it is:



Just a few others we mentioned…and that you won’t be able to resist:



Some other conference highlights outside of our session:
(We know, hard to believe there were any, but it is true.)

@donwettrick – Shared his passion about Pure Genius.  #PureGenius

@manuelscott – Original Freedom Writer, who shared his life story to inspire us as educators to continue to be more and do more for others.  Scott challenges us to teach like someone else’s life depends on it because it does.

…Fast forward thru “unhandled” ASCD speakers…

What does it take to the best?  @ShannaPeeples, the 2015 National Teacher of the Year, knows as she shared her stories, and expressed, “We are saved by what we create and who we love in a very real way.”

Wait!  The best is not over yet!  Best coffee shop encounter while in Atlanta – meeting two educators from the Netherlands, and having an unconference while soaking up the sun between sessions.  Join us in following these two Dutch teacher trainers:


Learning can happen with a variety of people and in a variety of places.  Follow these hashtags to take your Twitter PD to the next level:

#ascd16 – for highlights of the conference in Atlanta, GA


And last but certainly NOT least…


If you remember from our last blog, Dr. Wendy was hoping to meet one of her favorite tweeps – Ms. Stephanie Frosch @steph_frosch.  She accomplished her goal, and gave her a hug because their friendship started on Twitter and grew into a real flower. Peace out!

Twitter Ya at ASCD


Did you hear the news?  We are excited to see you at the ASCD conference in Atlanta, Georgia this week.  Wait!  You aren’t going?  There is still time!  So maybe we are optimistic to a fault… If you can’t join us in person, join us on Twitter.

Our session, #1257 is titled “Oh, The People You’ll Meet If Only You’ll Tweet” and we present on Saturday, April 2 at 1:00 p.m. in GWCC, Building B, Level 3, Room B310. Wow…if you see two people wandering around who happen to be wearing SMSU gear, please help us find our room. 🙂

Following the right folks on Twitter can help us become better leaders because of the dynamic ideas shared there. Our session will show you who to follow, and how to use social media tools to your professional development advantage. Some awesome folks that we have met are Dave Burgess, Todd and Beth Whitaker, Rick Wormeli, Peter DeWitt, George Couros, and others thanks to Twitter.

Our goal is to share resources and connect people. And the most exciting news is that someone Wendy adores on Twitter is going to be at ASCD. We are hopeful that we will meet her there. Maybe she will stop by our session so we can give her a hug…and we can because we are friends on Twitter.

See you in Georgia!

Stay Calm & Tweet On!
