This is Why I Blog/Tweet/Use Social Media

My last post, Research: One of the Hardest Things You'll Ever Do, was a reflection on a lesson with my 6th graders about evaluating sites.  I shared it with my network on Twitter and was met with some dialogue about my choice of "Is it a blog?" as an evaluation question.

Here is some of the conversation:
If I had never blogged about the experience and if I had never tweeted my blog post, I would have missed out on a concise, yet meaningful exchange that challenged me to think differently about my teaching. 
It makes me wonder: how I ever did anything on my own before!

Thanks to Bud Hunt and Tom Fullerton for pushing my thinking.
