TWITTER TRANSFORMS EDUCATORS


Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building.

Twitter Basics for Students

Twitter Basics for Students | New learning | Scoop.it
Have you heard of Twitter? Do you like to tweet? Most likely you’ve utilized social networking websites such as Facebook. So why would you consider using Twitter?

 

To enhance and increase connections with classmates – and potentially your instructors, as you may not find it easy to network with students on other sites and it is very unlikely that your instructors will appear on your friends list. What if I told you that this can help you develop an academic network and support system?

 

===> By the end of this post I believe you will want to give it a try and more importantly, you’ll likely find it can be an effective personal learning network. <===
