I love the internet… I just ran into this blog that I don’t ever remember having seen before. The writer of the blog is a person that I follow on Twitter… if you could really say I FOLLOW people on Twitter. (NOT REALLY!)
Actually truth be known… I signed up for Twitter A REALLY LONG TIME AGO, but really have hardly ever used it. Once when I was DESPARATE to find a way to bypass the filters blocking YouTube at my school, I put out a tweet for help. My fellow tweeters pulled through. They mostly told me to use ZAMZAR to convert it so I could put it on a flash drive and carry it to school to use… also I could then e-mail the video to myself and the co-teacher for whose class I was working on this project. It ended up working GREAT… I thanked my fellow TWEETERS, but then I have not been back on Twitter since.
Today for some reason, I decided to try Twitter…
OH, I think in some bog post that I read, (SORRY, I still can’t remember who wrote about the site I went to – been running up and down my reader trying to figure it out… can’t!) there was a reference to an article to get K-3 Teachers started on Twitter. I figured that was just what I needed. A Kindergarten approach…
I went to the link and read the information. It seemed straight forward and made it all seem so easy.
So I got onto Twitter.
I started looking at the people I FOLLOW… (I use that term loosely.)
After reading the DIRECTIONS for K-3, I knew that I should look up the web pages of the people I might want to follow. So that brought me to this first blog post whereupon I learned about THE SQUIRREL….
BUT THAT’S ANOTHER POST!
Do you use Twitter? How long did it take you to get hooked? How can Twitter be used at school, even in K-3?
