US vs UK: Edutwitter Styles

If you follow education debates on Twitter, you may have noticed stark differences in tone between your US and UK colleagues.

Blake Harvard recently posted on these differences — trying to understand and explain them.

He ultimately prefers the UK approach, although it can be rough-and-tumble for American tastes.

He also has recommendations for changing American EduTwitter:

Admit ignorance and ask questions…I constantly inquire with those who know more than me to learn more.  I’ve never been turned away or treated rudely for asking. If someone does act less than friendly for being asked to clarify or elaborate, they probably aren’t too sure of their own beliefs or need to be avoided anyway.

I encourage you to read the entire post.
