I wrote a post a while ago that one of the great things about Twitter is that it is Professional Learning 24/7 ( for me 24/6). However, if I had to pinpoint a key learning experience I would say the Twitter chats are one of the most powerful tools for learning. The downside it that there are so many and they can be very overwhelming.
I used to participate in a lot of chats. To name some:
Recently I have found it hard to participate in so many chats. Some of the chats mentioned above I no longer participate in, but as the prompt suggest I will try to be more involved.
Last night I lurked around #COLchat #hcsce and #edtechchat and I hope to start participating in the TeachThought chat.
One of the issues is that the early evening between 6-8 isn't always such a great time for me but I will try.
Another area of my digital learning that is important is my Zite feed. It keeps me up to date on certain articles and with Zite it is easy to share and post.
I have also renewed my blogging efforts and trying to comment on blog posts written by others is another area I hope to work on with regard to my digital learning.
Finally an area that is new to my digital learning has been Facebook and Facebook groups. At first Twitter was more for professional learning and Facebook was more social however lately there are more and more posts on FB and FB groups that it has truly expanded my digital learning.
Digital learning is such an important part of being a lifelong and connected educator.
