A "Tweetcher"?

So... if I am a teacher, and I use twitter...

Does that make me a "Tweetcher"??

noun. Tweetcher: Tweeter + Teacher = Tweetcher. A Teacher who tweets. A tweeting Teacher. Tweeting and teaching.

Think about it.

But seriously. I was kind of intimidated by the idea, but I like using Twitter. It's really cool, I can follow different local and international artists and bands that I like, as well as people in the education community from all over, and other organizations that interest me, like Sask Music, and the Sask Arts Board, the Science Centre! It's very cool, and I hope that I can make some connections with people, especially when it comes time to be creating lessons and planning units in the classroom. I can hardly wait! The ideas are pouring out, and using Twitter and reading blogs I have found ready helps me with gaining ideas and different perspectives that I can apply to lessons and to what kind of teaching I want to do.

I hope I can take all of these resources that I have been given, like google reader, diigo and all that jazz and play around with them this week and use them for the greater good! If I have any questions, I'll be posting them on here and on my Twitter, so hopefully someone will be willing to assist me!

Anywho, gotta put my creative "Tweetching" on hold, there is practicing to be done for our recording session tomorrow with my band!

Wish me luck!


  1. How did your recording session go? I agree Twitter is a fun thing. I hope it opens up new connections for both of us.

  2. I love the term tweeching! It is exactly what a teacher should be called. I love twitter. When it first came out I didn't understand it and thought it was mainly a knock off of facebook. However, it wasn't until I started to follow people of my interest that things started to tweech! I am really into sports, so by being able to follow athletes and see how they are in the communities helping out kids it opened my eyes. For me it is just awesome to be able to see an athlete who has a sort of "famous" quality as a normal, ordinary human. That is why I use your word and encourage all teachers to become tweechers!

  3. Yep, we are officially Tweetchers. I love Twitter. I think it is so neat. I also agree, love following different people, especially my favorite bands!
