BISD 12 Second Tech Challenge #7

12 Second Tech Challenge #7 involves one of my favorite tools. Twitter has allowed me to connect with other educators like no other site I have used. I have learned of new and valuable tools, engaged in thought-provoking discussions, had questions answered, shared my own knowledge, and gotten to know folks around the world via Twitter. Still, I realize that some might not understand the appeal, so I am challenging you to at least give it a cursory trial run. Go to the site, join, then follow 3 other users (I’m “rrodgers”, if you wish to follow me!). You can find a great list of other educators using Twitter as well as useful tutorials at the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies’ Edutwitter page. When you’re finished, be sure to list your Twitter name here–you might pick up some new followers! As usual, you can view the video below, or you can see it at this link.

Today in Twitterville…

Why should you be using Twitter? Here are a few of the resources, stories, lessons, etc. that I picked up off my Tweets so far this morning:

All of this while working on updating our department website and tweaking three Internet safety presentations. Also, it should be known that I haven’t met any of these Twitter buddies in person, yet I’ve been able to learn about countless resources, ideas, events, etc. through my “relationship” with them in Twitter.  I love blogging and I can’t imagine living without RSS right now, but Twitter is, in many ways, the best of both.
