I was tasked with preparing some resources for a presentation recently on the idea of using Twitter in our school district. I went back through my first 500 tweets on Twitter to compile this list, which I used at the meeting. Since then I keep receiving inquiries on the subject and decided to post the links here for now so that I will have a location to direct educators for the resources (until I get my Diigo account set up):

Thank you so much for collecting and sharing these terrific resources here, David! I posted this link on the Twitter section of an online personal learning networks wiki I created: http://onlineplns.wikispaces.com/Twitter

Thank you again for sharing your finds with other educators.
