Since February I’ve been microblogging at Twitter, a social media tool ( and recently sharing my experiences and lessons learned).
As I’ve come to appreciate, Twitter can be a great way to keep your ear to the ground and gain access to the latest news and ideas that the world is discussing.
As I’ve done in the past for non-Twittering readers of Mediation Channel, I’ve pulled together a sampling of articles I’ve recently passed along to my followers on Twitter.
- When empathy is in the lesson plan for middle school students
