Last week I wrote a little deal about Ten Tips for New Teachers. Far and away my most read blogpost. 1437 views to this point. Woohoo, right? It was fun to read the comments, especially the ones from former students. But this isn’t viral. I’m honored that it was read and well received. But I like to keep things in perspective.
The one below these words is viral. Let me use a BIG font.
Check out the stats on Andre’s tweet. As of this morning, 335,000 likes, 61,000 retweets, and over 1100 comments. If that ain’t viral, especially in the world of education, I don’t know what is. 61,000 retweets? Holy smokes! Her simple and elegant change of words to her students is a masterpiece. “What questions do you have?” Instead of, “Do you have any questions?”
I bet Andre would agree that the point of sharing our thoughts, however, isn’t to generate numbers. The point is to share, learn, and grow with our Professional Learning Network. And to make that happen, one has to take a couple of minutes to set up a twitter account. Here’s how.
We look forward to meeting, sharing, learning, and growing with you. What questions do you have?
