Yesterday, I started a personal "micro-project" called "28 Days of Twitter." I even have a handcrafted logo to prove it :)
I have been an inconsistent Twitter user for well over a year now. I totally 'get' its potential as a core element of a PLN, but I just can't seem to make it a habit.
Since I do well in setting up arbitrary "assignments" for myself, especially if there is a mechanism of accountability built-in, I have decided that I will commit to actively using Twitter every day for the month of February.
My plan has two planks:
1. Contribute/participate daily.
Don't just tweet what shoes I am wearing, but respond to professional queries/requests, and/or post something of interest or use DAILY. (Actually hope to do both of these each day).
2. Blog about something I learned each day
. Avid Twitterers (Tweeters?) swear by its value for learning about new ideas, resources and tools. I have actually learned a number of things during my brief Twitter stints. I plan to share bits of the daily payoff to demonstrate to myself and anyone else needing a push that it's really true.
I am sharing this project in the Ning for my PLP group
, but I thought it would be fun (and possibly fruitful) to throw it out to the big-wide-world of Classroom 2.0 as well.
Join me? (I have created a Twitter hashtag - #28dot)
