Colette Cassinelli's visionary use of information literacy and educational technology

“Tweet of the day” with #gr8t

From David Truss

For the month of March,

a group of educators and lifelong learners will be picking a

“Tweet of the day”

and Re-Tweeting it with the tag: #gr8t

There are a number of reasons why you might want to participate:

• To share what you value about twitter.
• To see what others value about twitter.
• To celebrate the power and wisdom of your Personal Learning Network.
• To find interesting people to follow on Twitter.
• To commit to trying out twitter for a month.

Your new tweet shows up on the Gr8Tweets wiki and on twitter searches for others to see and share.

Feel free to follow Gr8tweets on Twitter and Gr8tweets will follow you back, (this part is totally optional).
Even if you aren’t on twitter or you don’t want to participate, be sure to check out the Gr8Tweets wiki and see some of the reasons why so many educators are finding Twitter a valuable tool!

(Here is the story behind this all)

  • Thanks for sharing this post!

    This is indeed a great way to get started with Twitter and quickly see the value… I think gr8tweets gives many of us the opportunity to encourage people who tried Twitter out and gave up, to visit the wiki and see ‘how’ many educators are using Twitter to connect, learn and share. http://gr8tweets.wikispaces.com

    It takes a while to build up a ‘followship’ where Twitter really starts to feel like a conversation, and so hopefully Gr8tweets will help newcomers and second-comers to find new connections and to view Twitter as a valuable part of their learning network.

    And finally it is a celebration for those of us that Twitter has already sunk its’ teeth into;-)
