BLC10 - Using Twitter to Establish your Personal Learning Network

3,536

Published on

Liz Davis and I used this slidedeck as we worked with attendees at BLC10 to build their networks on Twitter

Are you wondering what all the fuss is about? Have you tried it and still do not get it? In this session we will focus on the ways Twitter can be harnessed to build a rich and powerful learning community. We will discuss tips and tricks to leverage the potential of this network. Resources will be provided to help attendees set up their own networks during and/or after the session. Finally, we will capitalize on the face-to-face connections within the workshop to further enrich our online learning communities.
