Currently we've created a cohort of teachers that is using social media to enhance their own personal professional learning. This group of diverse educators includes teachers, administrators and coaches. Using tools like Twitter, Voxer and Instagram, the cohort is working to showcase the instruction in their schools and build their own repertoire. Cohort members will soon be nominating new members who they will then mentor for the next year to begin using social media to enhance the professional learning experience.

That is great, Ben. I LOVE social media for professional learning and growth (as well as in class with my students). Would you say it has been productive?

I am a big fan of social media for professional learning and for learning with students in the classroom . I really like the mentoring twist built into your cohorts. Where social media is concerned, I believe that a mentor would be key to teachers feeling confident enough to give it a try. You said you showcase the instruction in your individual schools - do you share this via social media? How are you processing and using the data you collect?
