In today’s digital world, teaching in isolation is a choice. Even if you are missing out on an in house grade or subject level partner to collaborate with, fear not, social media can help you find your educational matches! This session will highlight how you can use social media to connect with others as part of a global community who will help you with your learning,  improving your lessons, helping your students connect with other students and content experts.
