Educator Launches Popular #SaveEdshelf Campaign

THE POWER OF A TWEET: Pre-service teacher Alicia Leonard demonstrated the power of Twitter recently when she decided to launch a #SaveEdshelf campaign after the company announced it was shutting down. An amateur Twitter user, Leonard explains in a recent blog post her surprise at how quickly news of the campaign traveled across the Twittersphere.
