Do you have a Twitter account and just don't know how to use it? Are you like me and haven't ever found a good use for your Twitter account?
I have finally learned some hashtags that I like as well as found a few people from those hashtags that I am now following. I have learned some great techy information from Twitter in the last few weeks!
Go to this link to find some great educational hashtags that you might want to try out and see if Twitter might be of use for you in your professional development journey!

School Fusion fun!
I was beefing up my School Fusion page today and someone told me that you can change the background! Who knew? So, you want to know how?
Go into your School Fusion Profile. Pick a class page. Click on Edit Configurations. Scroll all the way down until you see "Edit Background and Sound." Click on this and then there's a drop box to pick your background. I have Jelly Beans for Easter :)
Once you pick a design, click Save and you're ready to go!
You can also have a sound play when your page is opened. I personally like the Gilligan's Island theme.
Thanks to Tina Cope for submitting this great idea!
