What is your power?
My power -- communication, sharing my story, connections

How do you use social media to connect with other educators?
-Twitter -- education chats, educational leaders, classrooms, etc.
-Voxer -- walkie talkie app for communicating with teams
    -saved conversations
    -education conversations

3 steps to taking over the world (or at least changing your world):
1) Find your crew -- Personal Learning Family #usetech4good
2) Solve a problem -- spirit influence
     -How do we solve problems within our community? school building?
3) Scale -- spread the love (@digcitkids)
     -advocate for yourself and your students -- give students an outlet to share their voice

Flourishing in education:
1) Culture & environment -- finding your place
2) Connecting/Sharing with other educators -- social media
3) Move on those magical moments -- put it out there and see what people think
     - it could be a project for students, systems for a school - seek criticism and feedback through your Personal Learning Family
     -help others with their challenges:
