I have been involved in a few chats that have helped increase my PLN (Professional Learning Network) as well as my knowledge about many things of an educational manner. I am still needing to connect more with vegan community chats.
You can hear me quoted at 30:25, during a live after chat, in the video below.
Whether I was tweeting about my own blogs, retweeting other's blogs and tweets, or finding useful information to share I was busy building my PLN (Professional Learning Network). This is how I increased both my knowledge and my Twitter stats. I did not do this alone. Without the help of the Twitter community I would not be where I am today re: network of educators that surround me. Thank you to my Tweet friends.
Here are some of my Twitter conversations with my classmates. Most are encouragement and helping them build their PLN's. Through sharing other's information and blogs, as well as my own, I learned to dig deep into the hashtag world to find relevant and popular searches for the subject of the tweet. I believe I now know how to use #hashtags to gain optimum influence for the tweets I tweet.
This is just a small sample of the many, many tweets I shared of my classmates.
There were a few class-mates whose technical abilities far surpassed my own. However, I found a few ways to contribute to this Google+ community in a small way. Here is a sampling of my contributions.
