Being a Connected Librarian Rocks!

On Saturday, I was fortunate enough to join connected librarians Elissa Malespina, Gwyneth Jones, Nikki Robertson and Tiffany Whitehead on a panel for the New Jersey Association of School Librarians.  
I had a blast and the following tweet sums it up nicely.

We discussed great resources for connecting with colleagues in our profession.  Twitter was at the top of the list for sharing, collaborating, and making connections.  Are you using Twitter yet? If not, what are you waiting for? Twitter offers the best professional development 24/7 for FREE.  Did I mention free?   Aside from making connections, Twitter provides a forum for numerous professional chats.  A few of my favorites include:
               #TLchat 2nd Tuesday at 8:00 pm EST
               #Edchat Every Tuesday at 7:00 pm EST
               #TXEDchat Every Wednsday at 8:30 pm CST
               #TXLchat 2nd & 4th Tuesdays at 8:00 pm CST
For more educational chats, hashtags and Twitter resources for educators, visit Jerry Blumengarten's Cybraryman page.  Happy tweeting!
