What is a Personal Learning Network? • Think-Pair-Share: – How would you define a personal learning network? • Web definitions: – A collection of resources to go to when you want to learn new ideas, strategies, and information. – A group of people who can guide your learning, point you to learning opportunities, answer your questions, and give you the benefit of their own knowledge and experience. • Think-Pair-Share: – How do you learn new things?

Guided Tour of Twitter • Followers • Public vs. Protected profiles – Log in to Twitter – Click Settings – Scroll down and check the box next to "Protect my Updates" – SAVE your changes. • Tweeting • @replies • Direct messages (DM) • Favorites • Nudge • Following someone

Twitter Resources Twitter in Plain English David Lee King: Twitter explained for Librarians or 10 ways to use Twitter Newbie’s guide to Twitter

Let’s get you started using Twitter! • • Create a new account – • Settings – Profile is very important! • Sending tweets – remember your limited to 144 characters • Finding friends – “Find People” – –

Twitter Engagement Formula 70-20-10 • Share Resources (70) - Successful learning in the 21st Century is not what you know, but what you share, so 70% of my Twittertime is spent sharing others voices, opinions and tools; • Collaborations (20) - 20% of my Tweets are directly responding, connecting, collaboration, and co-creating with like-minded Twitter colleagues. From these important tweets, lifelong professional and personal relationships have been forged. • Chit-Chat (10) - 10% of my Twittertalk is “chit-chat- how’s-your-hat” stuff. It is in these “trivial” details shared about working out, favorite movies, politics, and life in general that I connect with others as a human being. These simple chit chats are what have allowed me to know that I am never alone, and there is support whenever, wherever, and however I need it! Angela Maiers

The “P o w e r ” of a Personal Learning Network is AMAZING! Twitter! Think of the ways this could help you teach and learn!

More Ideas for using Twitter • Personal vs. Professional use • Share good work-related things you’ve discovered (a good article, website, idea, etc.). Whenever possible, include a link (if it’s too long, use TinyURL to shorten it with one click). • Retweet something interesting somebody else has Twittered. Show respect though by giving that person credit. – Simply start your message with “Retweeting@username” and then paste in the original message (the @ symbol is the Twitter convention for responding or referring to other users). • Communication tool

Final thought…… • Do you love to learn? • What new things do you want to learn or work on this school year? • What is your personal learning goal? Don’t wait to go to a conference or workshop! Create your Personal Learning Network today!
