It’s well known that I’m a self confessed Twitteraholic and twitter is an important part of my personal learning network. I’ve even written a Quick Start Tips for New Twitters.
Yet I’ve never been comfortable with recommending twitter as a starting point to build a personal learning network.
Maybe I’m too conservative?
Twitter is currently ranking the highest from 128 response in my Personal Learning Networks survey question “Which five (5) tools would you recommend as a starting point to build a personal learning network?”
My thoughts are twitter must be freaky and intimidating to people new to using Web 2.0 — especially given the etiquette involved in using twitter. Let’s not forget there are numerous very experienced elearning professional who aren’t comfortable using it.
So I’m interested to know:
- I started as a podcaster — where did you start?
- What was the first tool you used to build your personal learning network?
- Is twitter a good starting point to build a personal learning network?
Also there’s still time to add your responses to my Personal Learning Network survey!
