Get Twitterpated! #principals #hdgallery

About This Presentation
My presentation for a "speed dating" event for new teachers. This type of speedy introduction is fun to do. We were looking for silly names to share with teachers, and this one popped into my head. If you're familiar with the term "twitterpated," well, you have to realize that it dates back, WAY back an old Walt Disney movie--Bambi.

Here's the relevant video clip from YouTube:

Phenomenal job! Love the resources that you have included. I tend to include everything so the user has more to choose from but I think that might be a mistake. I appreciated the "short" list of powerful links. Thanks for sharing! Cheers, Jeanne
