    Thanks, Hadley. This is a clear example of how online collaboration can work to enhance our classrooms. It’s also a great example of the power of Twitter to connect teachers!

    I’m looking forward to working with you and your students 🙂

  2. I love how you both connected! This is definitely a story I will be sharing during my presentations this year on the benefits of a PLN!

  3. Hi Hadly,

    This is a great story. With wikis, blogs, twitter, FB and all the other online collaboration stuff, we can make the world smaller. Our kids will be able to know about others and also collaboration better than us.
    Thanks for sharing your story with us.

    I loved your story! As an elearning professional, a student exploring how web 2.0 tools like twitter can be used for learning and a mother of a middle schooler at an independent school in Phila., I found your story exciting and inspiring! Our children need more teachers like you!


  5. Hi Hadley

    What an inspiring post! The wonderful PLN you have built up has proven to be an invaluable asset and one which your students can learn so much from. Thank you for sharing your experience.

    Hadley, Thanks for the great post. I wonder if you read an earlier post by Catherine Cabiness. Her class is using PikiFriends (my program) and I am too at my school – maybe it could be a useful tool for you.

    Happy teaching,
