Reflecting on my first tweet
Posted March 22, 2014on:
Twitter turned eight this week.
I wondered out loud then and I have since answered my questions.
Twitter was an answer to a question I did not have (why use it?). I did not use it for several months because I did not have a purpose for it. I know that to this day Twitter (and many educational technology) workshops are run without answering that purposeful question.
I have since found out how to use Twitter to connect loosely with like-minded others, be a member of an online community, access the latest information, share nuggets, and teach informally.
I have moved from wondering to wandering. Twitter has allowed me to explore new ground and to teach and learn in ways I would not have considered before.
