This account keeps me up to date on all the new and cool things happening with Mimio. I was fortunate enough to use a Mimio in my Internship and I am now wishing I would have looked to Twitter for more resources from Mimio to keep up to date and try new things.
@jenorr I decided to follow Jennifer Orr after an ECMP355 live session last week.
Who wouldn't want to follow a Canadian named Mr. D?!? Just kidding, but this Elementary teacher from New Brunswick has a lot of great posts on Twitter about teaching in an elementary classroom with great links too.
This classroom Twitter account shares the classes learning with many links to their classroom blog. It is very important to teach students how to use technology and I feel that using a classroom twitter account allows students to share their work as well as learn how to properly use social media.

Tommy Edison was introduced to me by a friend and he is a legally blind individual who is an inspiration to me. He has allowed me to see the world through his eyes, even though he is blind. His instagram photos show true, natural beauty and made me realize that photography is about sharing an experience and a view, not necessarily about having the best picture. I used to be hesitant to use different types of technology in case the way I used it was somehow "wrong", but following Tommy Edison has made me realize there is no right or wrong way to use technology, the right way is the way you want to use it.
Jeff is a friend I met in the fall through a friend, and he works for a local newspaper in Regina. Not many people can say on a weekly basis that their friend made front page news, but following Jeff keeps me up to date on the local news as well as interesting articles from across Canada.
Sheena is another friend of a friend I met this past weekend who is working on her Education Degree at the University of Regina. I figured I would follow her, although I'm unsure of whether or not this is a good idea because she cheers for the Calgary Flames, but she recently joined twitter so I figured why not follow?
