Interview 3 of Couples Twittering for Education
When I first joined Twitter a little over a year ago there was talk of its demise. Several of my educator friends and family scoffed at the idea of educators collaborating through Twitter. However, there has been an amazing boom and growth of educators who have connected through Twitter. There are collaborating in exciting projects! There has even been a growth in couples who Twitter for education. I was happy to connect and interview one of the coolest couples on Twitter, Will and Elle Deyamport! We had a lot of laughs trying Wetoku, a free video interview tool, for the first time! We had some kinks like a few echos so I edited the video a little. You may have to turn the volume up. Even with the kinks, I think it went well.
