Angela Maiers: Bowllan’s 2008 Twitter/Emmy Award Winner

There should definitely be Emmy awards for educators, and you know what? I’m not sure this is even allowed;angela2 Angela Maiers: Bowllans 2008 Twitter/Emmy Award Winner emmy%20003 Angela Maiers: Bowllans 2008 Twitter/Emmy Award Winnerbut I’ve been so impressed by educational consultant, Edublog winner, and twitter friend, Barbara Angela Maiers, that I created a special award for her…

Bowllan’s 2008 Twitter/Emmy Award!

Twitter is where, I, as an educator, am able to share ideas, get advice & guidance from the experts, and have access to links…galore. It’s like a candy store for teachers. Angela, the Twitter Resource Bank for educators (which comes via her tweets), is not to be believed – AND - she’s nice about it! She greets us twitter folks with a cheerful good morning tweet and then she’s off and running with her goodies. And while I still don’t know how she does it. Angela’s post, Got 12 minutes? What I Learn from Twitter, gives me some insights as to how she tweets from her humble tag line "Together We Are Smarter."
 
***Note*** These links are from my favorite tweets, via Angela Maiers. Now, imagine the tweets that I missed!
