Thanks for that, Claire - I have been catching up on posts and read all about creating my twitter account, but when I set it up there was no one to follow!  now I have somewhere to start, much appreciated.

Morning all,

Over the last couple of weeks (as I finish up as English Facilitator at Team Solutions and get ready to head to Epsom Girls Grammar School as Director of e-learning), I have been delivering a series of workshops around e-learning and using ICTs in the classroom. One idea that seems to be going down well is the idea of using Twitter as a PLN (Personal Learning Network). All this really means is that you create a Twitter account for yourself and simply "follow" people or companies that can keep you updated and deliver you relevant links and readings to your home page.

You don't even have to "tweet" yourself if you don't want to. I have only recently got back into Twitter, and have found that it is really effective as a kind of personal professional development tool that can be completely tailored to my own needs and interests. Below are some of the people and places I have been following:


Considering Twitter as a PLN!

Another good technique is to have looksy at who like-minded educators are following, and poach from their list! You could check out:

ClaireAmosNZ<http://twitter.com/ClaireAmosNZ> That's me!

virtuallykaren<http://twitter.com/virtuallykaren> Karen Melhuish
fionagrant<http://twitter.com/fionagrant> Fiona Grant

Let me know who you recommend from the Twittersphere (including yourself!) and how you use it.

Plenty to keep you busy over the holidays.

Cheers

Claire
