HOW TO: Use Twitter Lists

HOW TO: Use Twitter Lists | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

It’s easy to see how a free tool that connects you to your students can be helpful. But Google+ is not something you simply pick up and assume everyone knows how to use. In fact, I’d recommend making sure everyone you want to speak with actually has an account first!

After explaining this to a person I admire (John, don't get a big head) he suggested to unfollow everyone and rebuild my PLN. So I did. And I am thrilled I did.
