I was pleased to have Shannon Smith join me on Parents as Partners at Edtechtalk on Monday February 20, 2012 to talk about Building Learning Networks. Shannon created a mini-tutorial on how to use Twitter as a tool and in the show demonstrated how to use Twitter with an emphasis on connecting learning for principals, teachers and parents. You will find a link to the video in the LiveBinder for the show. (Link below) Shannon has highlighted some key points on how to create your Twitter accounts. Special thanks to Aviva Dunsiger for taking the mic and sharing how she uses Twitter with her students and their parents. The following video, LiveBinder and Chat log are good tools to use in your school or parent community to promote using social media tools with parents and teachers. I am still reflecting on the sharing of ideas by participants in the chat room. The issue of fear and negativity was identified as a barrier to using tools like twitter. Please take a look what the participants suggested as solutions and share your thoughts.
The following is a recording of the show. If you don't see a video here, please refresh your browser.
