Social media is a huge source of professional learning - can that inspire the way PD happens offline?

One of my biggest sources of professional learning and collaboration is social media, particularly Twitter. I wonder if the ways in which educators share and connect online can become inspiration for how we learn professionally offline as well? 

What can we learn from the successes of digital PLNs to help teachers grow and feel inspired even if they're not on social media?

In our case, we don't have many teachers using social media (at least professionally), so we setup an internal social media portal as a baby step.

Cool! What tool did your school use to set it up?
