  • The tool
  • Why social media matters...
  • Use Facebook because you are already there...
  • Liking pages of existing Twitter chats (more in a minute...). More permanent resource that Twitter that can often fly by. Includes link to Twitter stream
  • Like a page connected to a blog
  • Pages focused on specific topics & interests
  • Large public stream...
  • #edchat - Tuesdays @12:00 & 7:00pm
  • #wetech13
  • #satchat
  • Hootsuite for management
  • Facebook-like... Personal note about using G+ in more professional sense, like Twitter. Seems more public than Facebook.
  • You follow like Twitter and manage who sees what through Circles
  • Communities are similar to Facebook Page
  • Communities overlap between Facebook & Twitter. Some specific...
  • Other more wide-spread and general topic... General social media
  • Others more focused... social media/inbound marketing for schools
  • It comes to you. Notifications sent to email
  • Not something you might consider
  • What Pinterest is like...
  • An aggregated visual source for information by topic/board
  • Facebook for professionals
  • Not pages, but topic groups
  • National Organizations... ISTE
  • TIE - Topic based groups
  • Same email notifications
  • Blogging...
  • Ultimate is sharing and giving back. Engagement through comment. Deeper looks into topics and ideas
  • Blog from keynote speaker Scott Rocco (@scottrrocco). Se what he is thinking about specific topics
  • Colleagues blogs... you may not always have the time to talk during the day, but they may be out there writing about things.
  • Personal example... why I blog is for the metacognitive aspects of it, to get it out of my head and to give back to those that have helped and inspired me. Successes and failures.
  • Blogs on blogging, sharing and social media
  • Professional Development in your pocket... have a smartphone you carry your PD with you!
