Wrapping Up the Twitter Challenge

Who are five people that do your job better than you?  Are you learning from them? (@ideaguy42)

A couple weeks ago I encouraged you to think verbs rather than nouns (another idea from @ideaguy42) when applying educational technology.  The ultimate objective of the Twitter Challenge was not to make you better Twitter users, but to connect you with other educators through using Twitter more effectively.  By the time Twitter is replaced as the “spot where the cool kids hang out,” connection will be even more critical than it is now.  The tool will change, but the networks will simply be facilitated on another communication tool.  One of the most powerful transformations that technology brings is the ability to communicate with anyone, anywhere, anytime.  Through technology, there are no limits on interacting with the people who do your job better than you.  Why wouldn’t you learn from them?
