Usually I just use social media to lurk from afar and “creep” on others, so it felt a bit unnatural to actually talk to others on Twitter.
But in an effort to grow my PLN, I did reach out to others!
I asked questions, and helped others in the process.
I participated in #saskedchat and connected with educators from all over the world
I also interacted with my classmates by commenting back and forth on each other’s blogs
I also retweeted resources and articles that I thought might be interesting and useful to my peers
Although I took this course while sitting on my couch at home, I didn’t miss out on interacting with my peers. I feel as though I got to know them just as well as, if not better, than if we were face to face in a classroom. Not only did I learn a lot from my peers and the other educators I connected with, but it feel great to know that I helped their learning in some way too.
