I just love the video below from Derek Sivers (credit to @cariteske and her tweet which led me to it). I think Sivers’ thoughts are especially relevant to educators who use social media (Twitter and blogs) to connect with one another to share ideas. What may seem like normal teaching practice or thinking to you, might be just the spark or validation to help another teacher make a big difference for their own students. This is why I keep pushing my educator friends to get connected with Twitter. An obvious practice you use successfully in your own school could be an amazing new idea that will help another teacher and their students.
