Build a powerful PLN

Learning with e's

In my opinion, the most powerful PLN building tool is Twitter. For me, Twitter is an incredibly powerful yet simple tool that enables me to connect with, and learn from, specialists, experts and enthusiasts in my chosen field of expertise. learn something new everyday, usually as a result of dialogue on Twitter, or clicking on a link someone has shared in my timeline.

Spark Your Interest

I have used the social bookmarking service delicious on a fairly superficial level up to now, I would say. . I was interested in how I could share my links and when I was a manager of 12 trainers/instructional designers, the benefits of a pooled set of favourites/bookmarks, tagged and annotated made me salivate.  I realize now that this is really level one use, a group uploading their faves to the same place, mainly an efficiency savings and an access winner. . I’m no longer a manager with employees, I’m an independent.  Do I connect it to twitter? How do you choose?

Twitter for learning

Sticky Learning

Why wouldn't you use Twitter?! I've only been actively participating on Twitter for 4-5 months now. I'm also interested in how design thinking impacts upon learning and the use of visuals to communicate ideas and knowledge.  In the few months that I've been active on Twitter I have been exposed to more ideas from more sources than in whole years previously. Twitter keeps me current. I can go to university and complete a course, but after a VERY short while that knowledge is dated. Twitter is free, always available and keeps you up to date with the very latest ideas.

It all started with a message on Twitter from @stephendale who stated: "A taxonomist: One who organizes information in ways that makes sense to content providers, rather than content users."
