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.

The 9 Types of Collaborators - Infographic

The 9 Types of Collaborators - Infographic | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

If you approach your collaboration strategy with a “one-size-fits-all” mentality, your rollout is far more likely to fail. There exist all different types of users that each prefer to work in their own unique ways – some prefer to work in groups, others in silos, some on iPads, others on pen and paper. They also have different needs for the solution – some just need to share files, or manage tasks, or automate processes with workflows. Learning to recognize the different types of collaborators and their reasoning for loving, or hating, collaboration will allow you to help each overcome their biggest barriers or objections.
