A couple of days ago, I posted about my Twitter story. It was inspired by one of my current students that I’ve never met in an online course I’m teaching. I thought it was a rather simple story—one that wasn’t really that unique but presented my point of view and why I thought K-12 teachers and higher education faculty should leverage social networks, such as Twitter, for their own professional development and integration with teaching and learning. What I found out instead was that it seemed to be poignant to folks. Here’s a few posts and comments I received about my blog post.
Maybe the banality of my story struck a nerve in a common shared journey that many folks have experienced. I realize it could also be that my Twitter story may be moving for others because they’ve shared their own story publicly or private in an effort to convince teachers and faculty members of the value of social network.
After Joanna Bobiash posted her tweet, I replied back to her:

So, I thought so more about hosting a small blog carnival for folks to share their Twitter stories. I thought the professional development value of this would certainly outweigh the 20-30 minutes it would take to write the blog post. So, I’m going to do it!
