  • <number>
  • <number>
  • Feeling alone?Want to connect?<number>
  • Twitter works for busy teachers.Teachers are always too busy<number>
  • There is never enough time.Time for 140 characters?<number>
  • Again, another alone imageGood pic to wax poetic.Awash in a sea of change, the lone educator seeks to connect with others when it seems he is the only one who is trying to progress. LOL.Seriously, talking about how we can use PLN's to connect to like minded eduators, and have those good conversations rather than the less than positive ones that we so often here in schools.Something like that? Absolutely something like that!
  • <number>
  • Taking a 'dip in the stream'!I forget where I heard that analogy, Wil Richardson maybe? that twitter is like a stream, you don't read it all, you just stick in your toes when you have a minute, or want to chat or think about things.I like that.me too
  • <number>
  • Good ol' Angela!<number>
  • information overloadTwitter as a filterWhat did other educators like?Twitter allows you to get a smaller, refined stream. Like putting a straw into the hydrantWhen you follow like minded people, you get info that has been seen by someone and passed on because they find it useful for something. Pre-filters it. <number>
  • information overload?It can be that way. But it's a good way to learn to filter things for yourself as well. Right, that's my track.information overload in terms of too many blogs to read, too many things to check out for yourself.Your pln can be a filter.<number>
  • Conversations
  • <number>
  • And more pondering.I like this one.It looks less like a calendar photo than the animal ones!Yup, I think we need a pic or two of kids to remind us that while we are building PLN's for us as eduators, it's all about having the discussions to enable us to be the best for the kids. These guys are what it's all about. Oh yeah, kids! Forgot about those lol!<number>
  • Educators around the worldMaybe point out some of the people in our nets that are in various places. Point out that we share manyu of the same issues and we can learn solutions from other places.<number>
  • We want our students to collaborate.As teachers, we need to be doing this too.If we are competent and familiar with the technology then we can share our skills with our students.<number>
  • An example of a quick peek at Twitter, a resource posted, tagged and saved all in about 30 seconds.<number>
  • Twitter is being used in classrooms as a teaching tool. in 30 seconds you can find out about it and see it and read about it all because someone in your pln suggested it.<number>
  • Jump in - try itMaybe talk about how to build the network, following a few and slowly, or trying to follow a lot righ away.Various ways to build it.For sureGood planthis is a good lead in to the section on how to do twitter. It looks like a ton of fun and very positive.<number>
  • Colin's followers.Mostly educators.<number>
  • Main sign in page on twitter.<number>
  • What the web interface looks like<number>
  • Donna's Profile. Shows the last tweets that were sent out.<number>
  • There are lots of clients for Twitter. This is Tweetdeck.Name a few, Twirl, some mobile ones.<number>
  • This is a bit overwhelming,but shows what you can get into.Is this your setup? or a pic you found?No, it's a pic from flickr that I found.True, definitely overwhelming.

    12. 12. Here's why I love Twitter: • Twitter allows me to share and glean resources I can use in the classroom • I meet and connect with other educators from around the world whom I would otherwise never be able to meet • I've become aware of and involved in conversations quot;beyond my fieldquot; • It gives me 24/7 access to the most creative, influential, and innovative minds the world has to offer, allowing me a virtual whiteboard and brainstorm group Angela Maiers http://www.angelamaiers.com/2008/09/my-twitter-enga.html Image by Giampiola Macorig, shared under a Creative Commons Attribution, Noncommercial, No Derivatives License. http://www.flickr.com/photos/gmacorig/144187480/

    18. 18. The Collaboration Age is about learning with a decidedly different group of quot;others”, people whom we may not know and may never meet, but who share our passions and interests and are willing to invest in exploring them together. Will Richardson http://www.edutopia.org/ collaboration-age-technology-will- richardson# Will Richardson is the author of the weblogg-ed blog, as well as learner in chief at the Connective Learning Group and the author of Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms.
