US and UK Edutwitter – An Ocean Apart – The Effortful Educator

Lately, UK edutwitter has been quite ruthless.  Conversations that began as ideological disagreements have, unfortunately, become personal.  To the best of my knowledge, at least three members of UK edutwitter have suspended or terminated their accounts in the past few days.  UK edutwitter, at its best, is a place for productive dialogue and debate about all things education; pedagogy, instruction, philosophy, etc.  At its worst, teachers administrators are contacted in an attempt to ruin reputations, *anonymous accounts are created to abuse, and dialogue becomes needlessly personal.
