While some people certainly do tweet about what they're having for breakfast, teachers, administrators, and educational organizations use Twitter in a whole different way -- making smart use of those 140 characters to share resources, wisdom, and inspiration.

PS 151 New York City uses EasyTech with ELL students Gordon Graham has spent nearly two-thirds of his 14-year teaching career in New York City’s highly diverse PS 151 , a K-5 elementary school located in Woodside, a community in Queens.
