January’s final edition of the What Did They Tweet weekly series!
Let’s see what our Personal Learning Network (PLN) tweeted in education and social media this week.
TED Video: When Kids Believe They Can
Free ESL E-book
@MBenevides posted the free Creative Commons English language textbook, Fiction in Action: Whodunnit. Adam Gray and Marcos Benevides co-authored this textbook, which will be available in print in the spring. Click here to download your copy to use in the classroom!
Presentation: 7 Tips to Getting Strangers to Connect to You
From @elearningPosts, I found this fantastic slideshare, The Shy Connector! This slideshare has some great points on how to connect on social media even if you are an introvert. The presentation is well designed and interesting.
Video: Power of Creativity
@Nlakusta shared this video, The Transformative Power of Personal Projects, which shows this creative ad campaign written by Ji Lee. There are a few PG-13 words so be warned. It is still a funny and very thought-provoking presentation.
Opportunities for Educators
Two opportunities arose on Twitter this week to win some cool technology for the classroom or earn some cash. Below is a list:
- Nominate your school district site for recognition and donations. Tweeted by @Allofek12.
- Win a $4,000 Lecture Capture/Presentation System for Your School just by leaving a comment on a website. Tweeted by @Simplek12.
Add the people in this post to your PLN by using this mass Twitter tool. Just copy and paste this list!
