Learning Using Twitter

twitter_learning_toolI am a learner!  In many ways I am still a traditional learner.  I take university classes, I attend conferences and workshops, and I try to keep up on current literature and research.  More and more though, I am learning using twitter.  Not nightly, but a few times a week I find myself getting resources, information, or thought provoking pics via twitter.  This blog will be short and sweet as I simply want to share some pics and ideas that I found on twitter.  Although I do not agree 100% with all of them, they make me think.  I hope you enjoy them, they challenge you, make you think, and encourage you to go on your own twitter learning journey.

These are just a few of the resources that have made me think.  Twitter is a great place to connect with others (twitter chats), discover different perspectives, and find resources.
