Tech Practice: Working With Twitter….

It’s been some time since I added a post – it’s been a tough Spring, but life goes on – and I realize we’re in Summer, but still – to be honest, my brother and Mom died within a month of each other, and despite the grieving, there is a great deal of clean up still going on.  Also, my internet went defunct  – it took the company a long time to figure out the problem, but it seems to be back – finally!

Anyhow, with my need to be on top of my game, here goes my endeavor to be connected via twitter!

There.  You can see my homepage.

Here’s what I discovered about Twitter – you really have to think before you type anything – you get only so much space.  So, I found someone who wanted to know about using Chromebooks in their classroom, so I tweeted back:

I also tried to “retweet” something – as I know nobody, really, in this realm to send out a tweet to (but that’s going to end within a few moments).  Here’s the example of my Retweet:

And, finally, I found an article to tweet out:

Of course, this account is tied to my work – I do have another account, but for some odd reason, I tend to mix them up – usually on the educational side.

The good part about this is I can tweet reminders to students, parents, other teachers, etc.  We, as an educational team, can also tweet updates, and become a bit more savvy with our approach in this ever changing tech world.

Am I comfortable with this?  Not yet.  I’m still not overly relaxed with Facebook, either, but it seems to keep my connected – especially with people I’d lost contact with years ago!

So, the plan is to keep trying and blow through that wall that makes my comfort level adequate.  Arrrrrg!

    1. Thank you! Brother was a shock, and mom was expected, but being hit with a ton of bricks is still just that. However, aside from that, just dealing with the leftover has been time consuming, but doable. So the past 3 weeks has been taking care of business and myself.
