A-List Member: David Andrade
Twitter Handle: @daveandcori
What is your day job?
I teach Physics and AP Physics. I also facilitate professional development sessions and help other teachers with technology integration.
How did you get your start in education?
I was actually an aerospace engineer for ten years and also an EMS Instructor and was looking to do something different when I decided to become a high school science teacher. My mother was a teacher, my wife is a biology teacher, and my sister is a teacher, so it runs in the family.
What do you think will be the biggest trends in education over the next year or two?
Mobile learning and learning on-demand. Students will be learning more on their own, at any time, with teachers helping them develop necessary skills and navigate all of the information out there.
What is the one Twitter account that you would recommend that education professionals follow and why?
Besides mine (@daveandcori)—just kidding! I would recommend @cybraryman1 (educator and writer Jerry Blumengarten). Not only does he post lots of his own information resources, but he moderates Twitter chats and shares tons of resources.
