Better ways to teach and learn: active and social learners
The word practitioner implies we are active learners - actively engaged in our discipline or profession. We are discussing, debating, hypothesizing, investigating and becoming aware of multiple viewpoints. Using Twitter means we are social learners - involved in furthering our understanding through discussion with others. Actually what we are really doing through our #edchats is modelling the kind of learners we want our students to become.
