These technology leaders have some very helpful and interesting information to share. This is what I really took notice of when checking out these amazing leaders...
Many of Mr. Lerman's tweets have links to great resources that you can download for free. I checked out SEVERAL of his links and downloaded lots of free resources! This is just one of the great resources I checked out. It's a free ebook with dozens of story starters to use in your classroom. I think it can be adapted for any level. Great find!

Ms. Jones does a great job of showcasing what is going on in her library by tweeting instagram pictures of what the students are doing. I am very interested in makerspaces, and she had several tweets highlighting what she has going on at her makerspace right now. Here's one great example of a duct tape makerspace. Such a great idea!

After checking out Ms. Hamilton's tweets, I decided she just gets straight to the point of what she is thinking about and shares her thoughts about newest trends in the library in an honest and up-front way. You really don't have to wonder what she is thinking about the trends of today. In this tweet, she responds to an article about "library pods." A new way of thinking where they now have 6 small grade level library pods instead of one large library.
What a stupid idea. How about a LIBRARIAN for every pod instead? https://t.co/wSnOdkCyiK— Buffy J. Hamilton (@buffyjhamilton) May 30, 2015
Mr. Vincent tweets about what's new in educational technology. Focusing on new apps, websites, and resources for teachers! This is a great resource to favorite and go back to when you are searching for something new to motivate you and your students.

Ms.Braun works in a public library and tweets about a broad range of topics that influence young adults, parents, and educators. She shares the latest news for technology, education, and libraries. I loved this tweet that is a great reminder about the use of technology.
Exactly "Innovation is not about the 'stuff,' but about a way of thinking." http://t.co/dO546mL8Kk cc: @Shantasmagoria— Linda W Braun (@lbraun2000) May 27, 2015
Ms. Schrock tweets about new products, programs, and tech ideas being used in education today. I found her tweet about a great TabDub video that I thought was so amazing. My students would love to do something like this!
