I’ve finally done it and joined Twitter. I have to admit that until last Friday’s ED554 class, I found Twitter extremely annoying. Especially when obnoxious Tweets made their way to the bottom of the TV screen during “The Bachelor” (it’s my hour of guilty pleasure and mindless viewing. Please, we all have one). But now I get it! I have been instantly connected to educators who are Tweeting out valuable resources that will no doubt benefit me.
I followed Scott McLeod after Steven mentioned him in class last Friday. He Tweets A LOT, like every hour. His Tweets are typically always beneficial and no doubt worth the noise, but to a Twitter novice like myself, it is overwhelming to log on and have several Tweets to catch up on. One, however, particularly caught my attention and even deserved a retweet.
Scott Tweeted a link to Pinterest where a user was sharing her favorite iPad learning apps. There are so many great apps! When you first see her boards, you’ll notice a lot of tech accessory boards. Keep scrolling and you’ll see boards for teaching prepositions, voice therapy apps, data collection, measurement, and so many more! How great is this? My first personal learning network inspired me to dive into another. Looks like I’ll be joining Pinterest next!
