Twitter Trends Details

adelaide Twitter trendsYou can always look at what is trending on Twitter from within but sometimes you want something more specific and related to a location. When you are wanting to do that then Trends24 is the site to go to. I searched for what was trending in Adelaide.

Finally! 21st century classrooms!

classroom technology Finally! Finally you can see and feel the difference. We are moving into the next phase of classroom teaching – the multimodal, connected classroom. We have teachers connected on Twitter, Facebook and other online sites. Teachers can develop their PLN across their own country and the world and are starting to do that with their conferences and classrooms. Teachers are developing expertise in different technology areas  whether it be apps, online sites like Google Education, Apple Education, Microsoft Education or mastering software and content delivery in a way which now shows confidence and expertise. We have our professional organisations interacting with us online and emails which are far more content rich and dynamic so that we are all starting to work together as a profession which is better enabling our classrooms , our skills and our content. The more we connect and share , the more we’ll determine good processes and ideas for education. It’s not even halfway through our school year in Australia. We are doing well!! performance standardsTechnology is organising content in a way which reaches out to more students and we are learning that .We are also sharing it as a profession and it shows. We’ve discovered the pitfalls and the work arounds and so we are able to move forward again. We are meeting our national performance standards really well.

The social media effect

social media effect As I have explained numerous times before , the tried and true practice of the internet is to share, gain feedback and grow your ideas. Like, share, follow. The infographic I have featured left explains how a blog post can grow your idea and permeate it through social media so it will both gain traction and come back to you with ideas and changes which will help develop your own thinking. You are not alone. You need not be alone. You do not have to sit there trying to come up with ideas and performance attainments. You can take yourself from where you are, share your thoughts and ideas and then blog or tweet them, share them in another social setting and the feedback you gain will help you decide the validity of your ideas and whether to pursue them as they stand or to adapt and change them. No idea is too small or too unworthy. Nothing is wasted. From all the sharing and repetition in different arenas we come to a common understanding of what we believe and think. We also create a cultural stability. If you look at the 35 social media infographics on Pamorama you can see another one which says Twitter is 43% babble and 38% conversation. Babble is an interesting choice of word. Tends to suggest the tweets are not worthwhile but people might just be throwing the ideas out there to see what happens. So called silly tweets can often get some serious thinking going. There is another infographic about balancing your social media diet. Certainly worth considering and certainly an infographic which makes you think about how you spend your time engaging with social media and how children/students should be balancing their time. This is something which people are thinking about at the moment and making lifestyle changes accordingly. The infographics are there to promote and provoke thought and consideration.

Map your Twitter followers

TweepsMapI have to thank @PeterDoyley for putting his TweepsMap up on Twitter so I could discover this tool. You link TweepsMap to your Twitter account and you get a map of the world showing you where all your followers are. It is fascinating information. Two thirds of my followers are from Australia and America and then the rest come from all over the planet. I love the internet. Information is presented in a very useful, interesting way. It means you might need to use other languages to contact more followers from different countries. It might mean you need to have dedicated Twitter accounts to reach certain parts of the world. It’s up to you. You have an interactive map which demonstrates clearly your reach and gives you information which you can act on.

Try #aussieED

#aussieED touted itself at one stage as being the best PD in PJs. It wasn’t wrong. If you are on Twitter you can follow the #aussieED hashtag at any time and gain a wealth of interesting education ideas and information. At 8pm Adelaide, South Australian time you can join in the online chat. It includes Australian teachers but there are also teachers from all over the world. It creates an intense feedback loop and for the whole time you are on there you become a contributor, a sharer and someone who offers feedback. Each week there is a different educational topic and the thoughts and ideas come thick and fast. It means you test out your classroom practice, your theory , your knowledge and you feed that all into the chat which grows exponentially as the time passes. It is half an hour of fun, fast ideas, feedback and furious writing. It is interesting, entertaining and I never fail to come away feeling like I have learnt, been exposed to a vast range of ideas and have contributed to that dynamic 30 minute thought field. It builds confidence and enthusiasm. It also connects educators in a very authentic way because they are intensely focused on their job both in practice and theory. As a form of professional development it is unique and demonstrates how powerful Twitter can be to harness ideas and competence.
