  • Go over norms: ok to use devices, encouraged. If something we talk about during this session gets you excited and you want to go off and start working on it, go for it. If it’s not meeting your needs feel free to go do something that will. This is your PD. \n

  • What does it mean to “follow” someone? Similar to being “friends” with someone on facebook, although my facebook friends are more likely to be real-life friends. I have friends on Twitter but most of the people I follow on Twitter are people who share similar interests and who have contributed to my learning in some way. \n

  • It can be an entry point into Twitter if you’re not entirely comfortable expressing your own thoughts yet. It can also be a way to gain new followers because you’re showing someone you like their idea. It can also get a little annoying if all you do is retweet other people’s ideas.\n
  • If you put a # directly followed by a key word it allows people to search for all tweets using that keyword. Can be used to follow tweets on a particular topic like #tweettheresults or #elxn41 . Allows you to participate in chats: #engchat. #FF\n

  • The cool thing about Twitter is that you can communicate with students and parents in a completely transparent way. My advice is, if you want to use Twitter for this purpose, let them follow you but don’t follow them. If you don’t follow them you can only send public messages back and forth. Blocking undesirable followers is easy.\n
