This is a quick post to educators who want to further learn and explore the utility and practicality of Twitter. The video above comes from TeacherCast, the Educational Broadcasting Network. To access the video through their site, go to http://podcast.teachercast.net/tep12/.
Also, another blog of note is Sue Beckingham’s Social Media 4 Us, which focuses on social media, digital literacies, and online presence in the context of education. Her current focus is on social media within higher education. She also posted an introduction to Twitter at http://socialmedia4us.wordpress.com/twitter/.
If you are interested in making more connections with other educators at Kirkwood and/or in your field, we urge you to develop a Personal Learning Network through Twitter or other social media like Facebook, Google+, and Pinterest.
