Why online? Undergraduate tweeting

November 12, 2011  |  Featured, social media  |  Share

This week I have been running sessions for Plymouth first year BEd students on getting connected with the education community online. As part of this I filmed a series of videos of undergraduates who have been enthusiastically participating in this community, and feel they have benefitted from it.

JC Sheffield got started ont witter through a live event, seeing how powerful it could be for sharing thoughts on a keynote lecture at a conference whilst it was happening. He has since moved into the world of blogging, where he has been sharing his ideas on education, and reflecting on his own practice.

In this video he explains how he got through some of the initial hurdles, how he has benefitted from sharing, and why he thinks it is important for teachers to get involved in the ever growing education community online.
