It took a lot for hoop jumping...a lot of one-step-forward-two-steps-back...but I finally managed to sign up for Twitter and download TweetDeck. I've already found dozens of people and organizations I want to follow, and I'm beginning to build a Personal Learning Network of educators to help me boldly move into this vast cyberspace.
I'm anxious to see how useful this tool can be for a teacher. As a newcomer to this sort of technology, it is reassuring to see that other teachers have gone before me, blazing a trail for me to follow. As with most new things, I find myself questioning whether I am doing all this the right way. I wonder, too, if there is such a thing as "the right way" to navigate the digital world at all. Perhaps the truth is there are any number of right ways, and my task truly is to find MY right way.
Well, time to saddle up and ride the wild software. I'll be lookin' for y'all out there on the range. Happy trails!
