Educators' Guide to Innovation

Connecting educators interested in innovation

A follow up session to the twitter discussion of last week, was the nature of this week’s Tech Talk Tuesday. Participants contributed to the conversations, sharing their twitter accounts to demonstrate a number of features and uses of twitter. The chat, as always, proved to be of great value.

From the chat:-

· 3D Map of the Titanic site for class virtual visits

· http://penbentley.globalteacher.org.au/

· Find people on twitter with common interests from this site

· Twitter for Teachers

· Twitter in the Classroom

· ultranet hashtags got us together with heaps of local educators

· twitter has led me to many excellent professional development webinars and live streams

· The best part of the Ultranet hiccup yesterday was the #ultranet as it meant I got to find out a whole lot more local tweeps

· i love watching TV with Twitter - watching shows that people on Twitter are commenting on at the same time

· I have a bit of a pet peeve though with people who use multiple hashtags in a twee

· You can edit the hastags in TweetDeck

· when we had an earthquake in Melbourne we were able to pinpoint the epicentre through tweets before it was even on the news

· I set up a twitter feed for #fashion for my VET Fashion students

· and a back channel of discussions like when at conferences

· there is a TV show called question and answer, they put tweets at the bottom of the screen during the program

· what is the difference between @ and # when you want to do a search - @ is for people # is for searching eg @penpal will get you. #edchat links lots of people by subject

· tell about tweetshrink too :-)

· i have two vanity columns! :-)

· seesmic is another good one similar to tweetdeck but I still prefer tweetdeck

· Tweetdeck is nice to sync between the iPhone and computer

· hashtags are only effective if everyone uses the same hashtag for a topic or event--doesn't always happen

· twapperkeeper - http://www.twapperkeeper.com/hashtag/ticer2010

· there have been some people using group follows where you can follow everyone in the group with one click-I think Moodle Mayhem did that. Ever wish you could follow all the Moodle Mayhem members who have twitter accounts? Click on this link. Using tweeple

· Topify can help you figure out who to follow back See Chris Betcher’s blog post on topify

· Twitterblast

· Blastfollow http://www.blastfollow.com/ What Is BlastFollow?

· Last week’s recording on Twitter Share ‘n Tell

· John Pearce’s shared twitter resources

· anyone else discovered historious?
