February’s 3rd edition of the What Did They Tweet weekly series!
Let’s see what our Personal Learning Network (PLN) tweeted about in education and social media this week.
Seth Godin on Education
@Teachingwthsoul tweeted this video interview of Seth Godin. Seth Godin is well known for his inspirational talks and writing that inspire change. You may want to visit his blog to be inspired and order one of his books.
Follow the Olympics via Twitter
This is my first year on Twitter. I have found following my favorite events, like the Olympics, is much easier through Twitter. Currently, I started following @nbcolympics to keep updated with the latest news about the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. On the website, you can find cool widgets. I have included this widget, which you can embed in your blog with video, news, and photos.
Youngest Speaker at TED: Adora Svitak
@Jswiatek tweeted this interview of the youngest TED speaker, Adora Svitak. Adora, who is only 12-years-old, inspires me with her writing, which you can find on the Educator’s Royal Treatment and on her blog. She has already published three books. Follow her on Twitter, @Adorasv and she will donate money for your follow to Haiti.
