Microblogging: Twitter, Instagram and Storify
Sharing your learning in 140 or less!
Another tool I like for microblogging is Instagram; after all, a picture is worth a thousand words.
I tend to use Twitter as a professional tool and Instagram as a classroom tool, but we will explore all possibilities in this workshop. One possibility I would like to explore is having teachers from all sites feel more connected through our own district Twitter chat.
I wrote a blog post recently on using Instagram in and out of the classroom.
Use a hashtag to make the internet tell a story. This is a great tool for curating posts across various social media outlets on a specific topic. Apply it to your school or classroom by making your own hashtag, like #CMSreads or #SwettChat.
I am often asked how I come up with all of my great ideas...the answer is almost always Twitter. Connecting with teachers around the world through my growing professional learning network (PLN) on Twitter has been a most valuable learning experience. Unlike a conference, Twitter is available at all times and it is free. Won't you join my PLN?
