With this in mind I have launched this quick research survey to find out where you prefer to build your networks and what the pros and cons of each of those networks might be.

Rebecca Haas's curator insight, February 19, 1:35 PM

This article makes a lot of valid points that can be used in every day on twitter, and in life in general! First impressions are as important on Twitter, and I think that is something many young professionals may overlook in interview and online. Also, I think many people follow their friends on Twitter, even if they are unrelated to their professional career, which can crowd their feed with social related things, rather than tweets related to education. This article also shows that it is possible to use your tweets outside of the Twitter realm, just by presenting your tweets on other social media sites! This seems to be a great checklist for the young professional, helping us utilize a site we most likely already frequent, but enabling us to turn it into a career-helping venue.

10 Simple Ways To Build Your Personal Learning Network - Edudemic

10 Simple Ways To Build Your Personal Learning Network - Edudemic | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
Getting online is easy. Finding a few resources is relatively easy. Finding useful (and real) people who can truly benefit your learning is quite difficult. That’s probably why there is such a big need for teachers, administrators, and even students to have a personal learning network (PLN). Whether it’s strictly online or a mixture of both in-person and online is not important. Whatever works best for you is what works best. Simple as that.

The big news of the day is that Coursera is offering online professional development. I love the idea of Professional Development MOOCsand think it has a big place in the world of education. I think teachers could (and will) learn a lot in online courses dedicated to pedagogies, flipping classrooms, and other PD lessons. The Coursera-run PD will do gangbusters business, attract lots of attention from VCs and news outlets (MOOCs = sexy) for good reason. It’s useful

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

TWITTER TRANSFORMS EDUCATORS


Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.

 

Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.

 

Here are some of the specific ways educators are using Twitter to collaborate:

Twitter provides a great opportunity to collaborate with educators outside of your local physical community. The exchange of ideas and perspectives can reenergize your career. “Twitter is often just the introduction — the virtual handshake that opens the door to a deeper collaboration”

Twitter, PLEs and PLNs

For all of the conversation occurring among educators about PLNs, there has been surprisingly little academic research on PLNs. With many educators using this term to describe their own informal learning habits, it is important for educational researchers to investigate exactly what this concept means to those who are using it as a term to describe a learning activity
