Techniques and Tools: How To Visualize Your Network http://www.bethkanter.org/catechfestla/ Practical Ways To Apply Networked Mindset Using Social Media • Be A Bridge: Introduce people in your network to one another. You need to let them know why you are making the introduction and this can be done online or offline. • Look for Islands: Those on the edge can lead to new groups and ideas • Work Transparently: The more public you are, the easier you can be found, the more opportunities you have. • Engage New Perspectives: We tend to stay in our comfort zones and don’t engage different perspectives — learning from adjacent practices can be useful. • Ask Questions of the network and experts: Social network tools make it very easy to ask questions to individuals and groups of individuals. You can also identify experts in your network on specific topics and ask them questions to help your learning or open the way to other sources. Other times you will follow the community or network conversation on a topic. • Share Learning: To share learning, you have to intentionally hit the pause button and reflect. One way to incorporate this technique into your day is to set aside five minutes at the end of the day for reflection.
