For the month of March, a group of educators and lifelong learners will be picking a
“Tweet of the day”
and Re-Tweeting it with the tag: #gr8t
Hopefully, you will join us in doing this too! (If you aren’t sure about what twitter is all about, start here.)
There are a number of reasons why you might want to participate:
• To share what you value about twitter.
• To see what others value about twitter.
• To celebrate the power and wisdom of your Personal Learning Network.
• To find interesting people to follow on Twitter.
• To commit to trying out twitter for a month.
My personal choice for what to retweet with #gr8t will be a Tweet that I find interesting, or insightful, or humorous. It might link to something I enjoyed reading, or it might have something profound or even fortune-cookie-like that appeals to me, like these tweets that I’ve ‘stared’ as favourites:
There aren’t really any rules to participate: Simply find a tweet you value, and share it!
For Example, here is a Tweet I’d like to share:
And so I retweet it with #gr8t:
I’m looking forward to sharing the Gr8tweets that I find, at least one daily for the month of March, and I’m hoping you will join me and share what you find.
Feel free to follow Gr8tweets on Twitter and Gr8tweets will follow you back, (this part is totally optional).
Even if you aren’t on twitter or you don’t want to participate, be sure to check out the Gr8Tweets wiki and see some of the reasons why so many educators are finding Twitter a valuable tool!
