You love it when you don’t know the answer to something. It gives you the opportunity to tap into the real-time learning happening on Twitter and other social networks.

You make sure to set aside time every week (or so) to participate in Twitter hashtag chats.

Let’s face it. You’re a tech-savvy teacher.

That’s the idea behind our latest visual that we had a lot of fun making. It’s a fun way to really find out just how much technology has become integrated with your life. It’s like the Borg. Only slightly less deadly.

Becoming a tech-savvy teacher isn’t easy and it actually takes quite a long time. As you can tell from just about all the example below, they are all time-intensive. You need to spend a year or so building a professional / personal learning network (PLN) that is big enough and reliable enough to be of use at a moment’s notice. For example, if you’re running a class or conference panel on the power of Twitter … you don’t want to have zero replies to a tweet you sent out to illustrate how useful your PLN is. It’s all about taking the time to make it perfect for you. That takes time.

The below are just a few of the many signs you’re a plugged-in and connected educator. What are some of the big signs we’ve missed? Share them with us down in the comments or by mentioning @DailyGenius on Twitter. We’ll be sure to retweet, share, and use your input for future graphics!
