I've written previously about building your own Personal Learning Network (PLN) using Twitter. The news is getting out. It is a valuable resource for elementary music teachers and music teachers in general. Unfortunately, the word hasn't seemed to have spread across the land of Orff-Schulwerk . So far I've discovered only about ten folks who Tweet anything related to Orff process, instruments, lesson plans, books, use of technology or philosophy. I know they are out there and will eventually find their way to Twitter. Please help me get the word out. I also want to repeat that once you begin sharing on Twitter, remember to use the hashtag, #Orff, in your posts. That will make it easy for folks to search Twitter for Orff related postings. I am concluding my blog with a few Twitter posts from people in my Personal Learning Network. I hope this gives you an idea of how useful Twitter can be. Follow me on Twitter. My Twitter name is #OrffSiteDotCom
