Educators... I have a mission for you!
Many educators are struggling with ways to develop their Twitter accounts, and I have an idea that can help us leverage the power of the global educator network. Join in the EDUTWEET Project!
If we agree as Robert Scoble put it in a recent blogpost "The Secret to Twitter", that real learning happens when we follow interesting people, then we need to have a good way of finding these interesting folks. The project below helps educators to do just that, and as a secondary benefit, will provide global educators with a way to observe the expanse of the Twitterverse in education.
Here's how it works:
1] Join Twitter
2] Send a tweet using the following form: "city, country; teaching assignment; EDUTWEET"
3] Visit www.tweetscan.com and search for EDUTWEET
4] Find educators teaching what you teach, or what you're interested in learning about, and follow them!
The podcast outline of this social networking project called 'TWEETSCAN' is now online at Teacher 2.0.
