I love Twitter for Education.
I love the MTBoS. I love the ideas (I mainly gather others ideas than scatter my own), I love the banter and the great collaboration (again, I am a consumer, not a producer).
But…I hate how this community makes me feel sometimes.
I am teaching Solving Systems of Linear Equations on Monday to my 8th graders.
I have a shiny new book, a list of steps for teaching the process and a great set of worksheets to round out the week.
I hate that I feel like there are a million better ideas for teaching this than I have.
In all seriousness, though, ultimately, I love that I am pushed to do better for my students because of the body of crowdsourced work and collaboration that is out there.
Thanks guys, and gals. You push me to be better.
