So tonight was my first real time chat and it started out a little rough.
5pm rolled around and I’m sitting alone in the blackboard room.
Thankfully my problem solving skills kicked in, and rather than giving up I did a little searching…. my G+ calendar indicated that I was actually supposed to be in Twitter (who knew that you could click on the calendar to get more details on the event)..
Realizing that I now needed to try out twitter I accessed the following resources
for the love of learning: Twitter is sold wrong http://www.joebower.org/2010/02/twitter-is-sold-wrong.html?spref=tw …
I realized that most people knew a lot more than I did, so my strategy was to engage others through asking them about terms they used which I didn’t previously know. Doing this I learned
twitterfall, tweetchat.com, Websites that allows you to follow a hashtag – edit the speed and auto adds the hashtag to your tweets
a tool like hootsuite or tweetdeck lets you set up columns
Evernote as a great online filing cabinet. Great organizational tool. http://goo.gl/Vaar1#etmooc
G+ Hangout it ‘s real time video conferencing via google+ great way to have a conversatio google.com/+/learnmore/hangouts/ … here’s their tutorial..it’s a super easy tech to use
The General tone I received from this strategy was that its ok not to know. And that people are proud to be able to share theire knowledge with others.
