This is the question we all knew we would be asked at the end of the year, and the time has come to show what we have. To start, I will talk about my experience with networking, from where I was before, to where I am now when it comes to Twitter and blogging. After I will share how I was able to help others in their learning.
Coming in, Twitter was not something I really used, other than to follow sports accounts and YouTubers. It was something I would mindlessly scroll through when I was bored and never took anything out of the experience. This class has changed how I see the platform now and has made me realize just how useful it is for teachers. I have not only gained so much from others, but I also feel like I am able to help others as well. I was even referenced in an article for Education and World Today when sharing a resource on critical thinking. This was really cool to see and shows just how quickly you can begin networking with others, even those you don’t know. Below are a few examples of how I was able to help others through Twitter:
My next experience was with blogging, which I had no experience or knowledge of AT ALL coming into the class. With that being said, I have found that it was another fun way to network and help others out, and I really enjoyed the experience. Here are some examples of how I helped others when it came to blogging.
This class has helped me grow as an educator a tremendous amount, And I plan to hold onto everything I have learned about networking, and how learning should be a two-way road. I hope I truly have helped others throughout this class, and I will continue to do so for the rest of my life.
