If you're not connected, I personally feel you're really missing out. After writing that down, I think about if I wasn't connected, and how much I would be missing out on. Not even all the learning I'd be missing out on but keeping up the connection with my school, even from across the country.
Thanks to Twitter and having my entire staff on, I can still see what's going on in their rooms, love it! I'm not their physically, but can stay connected to our classrooms.
I also subscribe to all my teachers Remind 101 accounts, keeps me connected and in the loop, received this one about ten minutes ago!
