Should Teachers Share Online?

 

As an educator, what does it mean to share? We tell our children at home to do it. We tell our kids at school to do it. We’d even be hard pressed to find an educator who didn’t outright argue against the notion of sharing. So why then are there still educators who choose to work in isolation (i.e., choose to not share)?

Perhaps educators are intimidated by the use of technology? How can any of us find the time to keep up with technology in order to increase our willingness to share? As soon as I learn how to use Twitter, for instance, some other technology will emerge (become the flavor of the day), and I’ll have to learn all about that new web tool. It’s a never ending story as they say…so why start?
