Top 10 in 10: Influential Tweets 7/10

10 Interesting/Influential Tweets

I’ve Read on Twitter

Your messages on Twitter must be 140 characters or less.  This can make sending a message quite challenging at times.  Often, people will include a link to a blog post, article, or other information.  Sometimes, people will post short, but powerful, messages.  Below, you will find some of these short, powerful messages that I “favourited”.  There are many, many more “favourites”, but these are the ones I chose to include in this 10 in 10. (You can  click on the tweeter’s name to visit their website/blog and their Twitter name to visit their Twitter account).

@dj_turner: RT @bkuhn: now here’s a message for all leaders… “If you don’t model the way, you are in the way” #sd36 #bcpted

The following tweet is a powerful tweet to me because I believe it is so important for all leaders in education to see the strengths in their buildings and celebrate these strengths. In doing so, they should shout them out for everyone to hear (including in the school)!
