On Saturday, Russell Stannard from University of Westminster gave a stunning talk at the e-Learning Symposium at the University of Southampton on Twitter and how it can be used to develop a powerful personal learning network He describes techniques such as 'piggybacking' and running 'hashtagged topic' searches in an engaging and down-to-earth way.
All the talks were archived and can be watched again on the Southampton Mediasite. Please note you have to download MS Silverlight first and you will be prompted to do this once you click on any of the links. To see Russell's presentation, click here.
MFL teacher Simon Howells certainly thinks it's good to share. This was his response to a tweet request from Alex Blagona recently who asked followers to give their reasons for using Twitter. Inspiring indeed!
