Upon reflection, this feeling does not sit right with my teaching philosophy where I value the power of conversation. Twitter is a powerful connector and I need to start engaging with others to develop my own Professional Learning Network (PLN).
Why is it important to have a PLN? This infographic from Sylvia Duckworth gives some strong context.
To help build all our confidence in how to connect and discuss with others, Dorothy and Anne set up a provocation where we were answering a series of questions and using the hashtag #MDTAchat. We were able to gain the technical expertise of responding to others from this exercise.
While doing this, I found myself in the "zone" - I was reading, responding and formulating ideas at a quick pace and it gave me the insight into the personal philosophies of my cohort. I was able to see the connections that others made as well as challenge both others and my own thinking. I found my Twitter voice!
So what next? You tell me, I want to talk!
