      I'm curious to know whether teacher educators discuss the phenomenon of the so-called "teacher influencer" with teacher candidates. A related issue is the rise of "educelebrities" using hashtags like #edutwitter to promote technologies or books in which they often have a personal financial stake. Seems to me another aspect of teacher training should include critically reading the posts and other work of the educators-as-brand-ambassadors.
