Blogs and Twitter Beat Formal Academic Learning

Blogs and Twitter Beat Formal Academic Learning | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

in the past two years, a whole new world of professional development and PLN’s has been unveiled, a world that is less traditional, formal, linear, or hierarchical; a world that doesn’t have such rigid rules about who gets to publish and who only gets to read; a world where ideas bounce back and forth in all continents in seconds through social networks and specialized websites. And I have a confession to make: though I did learn a lot in my formal academic endeavors, I believe I am learning much more now and from a greater variety of people. How did this all

When colleagues, who know I am on Twitter, ask about it the first question is always “why?”. After expounding on the benefits that a PLN brings the next question is inevitably “who?”. The people I follow is been a rather short list – one that has changed since I began this process. Whenever I stop following someone it has only confirmed for me why I follow others. So why am I your Tweep / why do I follow you on Twitter?

How Twitter Changed Everything

How Twitter Changed Everything | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
Twitter has shown me the ease with which Professional Development can happen. When a group of people put their minds together, a lot can happen. By sharing learning and questioning your own and others’ practice, growth is a likely outcome. I have heard it said, on Twitter and in other places, “The smartest person in the room, is the room”. Twitter is like one big room where we learn from and with each other.

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”

Rebecca Haas's curator insight, February 19, 10:35 AM

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.
