Tweeting - A Paradigm Shift - Tues., Feb. 14, 2017
Since today's the day for love, I have to say that I have never loved "tweeting." I was briefly introduced to it in the last class, but never really was motivated to really "tweet." Personally, it's a humility thing. My ideas are important, but are they important enough to share with the world? Maybe I'm too "old school" and that I had to wait to be called on by the teacher to share my thoughts. That's a paradigm shift to think that my ideas are valued and that others can learn from me. After watching the videos assigned for class, I've got a much greater understanding of WHAT it's for. I loved George Sieman's words "combinational creativity" and that knowledge is a network project. I've always looked at it as "one more thing to do," but the value is more evident now. I can even see where a # for my school could help with communication and knowledge sharing. I'm definitely more motivated to start using it as a tool in my daily life. When I set up my account years ago, I set it up with a lame account name because I didn't know any better. Here's my twitter LINK.
