Will I use ALL these resources in the workshop? Most likely not. However resources that do not become part of the workshop activities may find themselves in a list provided for the participants to access on their own during the workshop or later.
These sites should help facilitate some interesting and useful discussions. How do you help other educators discover the benefits of using Twitter?
