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!
My handle is: @tony_hunt
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!
