I enjoy using Twitter as a professional networking tool. Is is efficient and user friendly – two important positives. I am not a social media lover, although Twitter is growing on me as a future teacher. I have not downloaded the app, instead I have grown to appreciate the dashboard view. The layout is easy to follow.
I found twitter to be efficient – no non sense. I throughly enjoy the home page feature showing tweets in chronological order, as apposed to Facebook’s method of picking which posts to show you. That is my favourite feature.
During our class, the Sask Ed Chat was a wonderful experience. Tweetdeck was also user friendly. Twitter is a great way to learn from other educators. After the chat, I felt oddly connected to the users that we were communicating with. I can understand the fascination with social media after that feeling. I hope to keep social medias, such as Twitter, for professional networking when I am in the field and have a classroom.
