My last blog pointed to a few Education twitter-stars from the United States. Now let’s find some Canadian educators out there in the twitterverse.
Some tweeting teachers who post frequently and share interesting, relevant, focused tweets are:
- Dana Bergven : FI teacher in London, Ontario
- Mark Chubb : All things math : this guy has an amazing math teaching blog : buildingmathematicians.wordpress.com. He is all about the hashtags #iteachmath #elemmathchat
- Nancy Wise Ph.D. : Toronto based consultant who posts interesting results from studies on French Immersion
I also followed some Canadian organisations: @CanEducators, @CanTeachersFed, @CurioCBC, @EducationCanada, and @caneducation. If you look at the description of each, you will understand their importance for teachers and those looking for teaching jobs!
As I will be practice-teaching in French Immersion, I thought I would search to see what kind of hashtags are out there for this domain. I discovered #frenchimmersion, #Frimm, and #FSL. #FSLGRA was an interesting one, referring to the French Second Language Global Read Aloud. Following this hashtag I heard of a fascinating global event for the first time. So I looked into it. More information on this FSL Global Read Aloud blog!
If there is one person you all should follow, it’s Leo McKay, a high-school English teacher and author from Truro, Nova Scotia. Trust me, you will be entertained.
