Wow! I am finally a twit! (That’s the nickname I called people if they used twitter.) After After creating and posting my PLN using Popplet I explored twitter and Feedly some more. These are sites that I have never used and didn’t include as part of my network. I enjoyed all the educational things I could find on both sites but I still found it rather difficult to filter through it all and follow someone who could consistently provide me with useful information on a daily basis. I know that I will have to play around with it more to find my niche and continue to expand the people/topics to follow.
When I shared with my family that I had to tweet and blog for my course, they mostly rolled their eyes at the fact I was using social networking to learn. I explained to them that, surprising as it may be, using these sites is actually beneficial. It’s interesting how something can start as a simple way of keeping in contact with people and morph into creating opportunities for learning and research.
This all makes me wonder, what is the next up and coming media?
