I know I've been blogging a lot about Twitter lately. But, the network that has been embracing me has been amazing. What an accepting and generous group of people. I've been learning so much about Web 2.0 tools, giving presentations, teaching in different parts of the country under varying circumstances, and lots more. I'm finding that there are lots of people out there with very similar interests who are willing to help out total strangers. Frequently, a tweet will come through with a request for some tweets at a particular time. The request typically comes from someone who is giving a presentation and wants to show how the real time shot-in-the-dark kind of conversations that Twitter offers can be very productive.
del.icio.us "name," to please send it my way and I will compile the list. This way, we can add each other to our del.icio.us networks. One of the drawbacks of all these social networking sites, is the separate interfaces, usernames and such. We are all hoping for the ultimate Mashup of social networking one day.
I'm very excited to get this ball rolling and even more excited to explore all the great bookmarks that our friends, with similar interests in education are sharing. If you would like to be included, just post a comment here with your del.icio.us "name" and I will add you to our network. Then, just follow these easy steps:
- Go to del.icio.us (sign up for an account if you don't have one already)
- Click on Your Network (top left)
- On the right-hand side, in the text box, type in Twitter_EdTech
- Click ADD
- Now Twitter_EdTech will appear in your network beneath in blue
- Click on Twitter_EdTech
- You are now in Twitter_EdTech's bookmarks, but there are none... BUT WAIT
- In the gray box at the top, it reads:
All Twitter_EdTech's items (0)
Twitter_EdTech is in your network, view Twitter_EdTech's network
- Click on VIEW Twitter_EdTech's Network
For now, you will see these people have put themselves out there and offered to share their great finds that they have already posted to their del.icio.us accounts:
