        There's a great spreadsheet link of people to follow on Twitter in this first kete that generates great discussion starters for staff meetings, as well as for your own personal teaching values and philosophy.  A wealth of potential mentors at your finger tips for the beginning tweeter, right through to the seasoned user of Twitter!
