#bsd220slowchat is THE place for BSD220 Twitter Professional Development

Twitter continues to grow as an impactful source for professional development and networking for teachers in Barrington 220. Teachers have added Twitter to their repertoire of tools to improve their instructional practices, resources, and ideas. Thanks to pioneering teachers in the district, teachers not on the original Twitter bandwagon have embraced its value to the point that we now have our very own Barrington 220 slow chat, #bsdslowchat.

In the past couple of weeks, teachers across Barrington 220, and a couple of out-of-district teachers, have accessed questions shared by the #bsdslowchat moderator, Mrs. Caroline Milne (@MrsMilneBiology) and shared their answers the past couple of weeks.

Once or twice a week, Caroline posts the questions of the week:

Anyone on Twitter can respond with their own answers using text, links, photos, or videos:
As Tim O'Connor (@toconnor851),

Janet Woods (@jancwoods),

Vanessa Fennig (@MrsFennig), and more did this just this past month. 

You too, can join in the fun. It doesn't make much time, it's easy to do, and it can be accessed anytime, anywhere from your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
