Yeah Twitter

Had a great day on Tuesday with my good pal Sally who is an expert in Twitter. She was able to show me the ropes with Twitter but also gave me some ideas as to how this can be incorporated into the classroom. Have discovered that following the right sort of feeds is essential. You don't want to waste your time with people who think they know stuff but really it's all fluff. Have found a few really good people to follow. # Hash tags are a great way of joining a discussion group or creating one of your own. Hootsuite was an app I downloaded as a way of organising your streams. Really find it useful.

#edchat and #ukedchat are very helpful when seeing what other educators are doing in different parts of the world.

Some of the discussions with collegues at work this week has been how can teachers meaningfully display students digital work. Was able to give them some options like Issuu, Google Sites, Google Groups, Museum Box, Glogster to name a few.

Unable to get to the Accountant to register my company. Hopefully next week.

A few great sites I found this morning were Free Music Archive and Vimeo (alternative to Youtube)

Hoping to start Cert IV this week after registering company.

Until next week,
