How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | Social media enabling connected learning | Scoop.it

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.

twitter alone might not be sufficient, as we (or most of us) not 'always online', we have to do other things. combining twitter with a mechanism to comb through the # and compile personalized feed, would be useful.

Catherine Smyth's comment, April 23, 2013 9:20 PM
I'm a fledgling tweeter but love the way Twitter ignites discussion and ideas within a professional community.

Robin Martin's comment, March 30, 2013 10:21 AM
Absolutely true! This should NOT be an option...this should be included in any business plan. The trick is to sell this to "the boss" or those in charge of marketing. Let's keep pushing it!

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, March 27, 2013 4:51 AM

I haven't read this article but I knew right away, when I saw the title, that it was a valuable subject.  I think that if more business people knew who much curation helps their 'don't have time' problem, they'd really be enthusiastic about it. 

 

There's a tendancy, I believe, among business owners to think that people who read their blog, or website (or any other content) expect it to be Pulitzer Prize quality.  I don't think that's true at all.  Nor do customers expect a LOT of content.  They just want to know what the business owner thinks and (in many cases) what they're 'up to'.

 

Curation makes it so easy for business owners to give them that info.

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, April 6, 2013 7:43 PM

Add curation in with mobile video and travel blogging and I think you've got a winning combination.

Neli Maria Mengalli's curator insight, January 28, 2013 8:30 AM

Influencers on social media are either passionate individuals who turn out to be specialists or professionals involved who use Web 2.0 tools as part of their work. They take advantage of their presence on social networks for personal gain or as representative (or ambassador) a brand, company or organization.
