Promoting Tweeting to CSLA Members Through My Online Course

Learn 2 Tweet

I am a huge fan of using social media to interact with my peers and build my professional skills. I participate on a daily basis in a variety of social media as part of my Personal Learning Network (PLN). I feel guilty if I let a day go by without checking my blog reader for new blog postings, my Google+ feed, Twitter feed, email, and more.  While I consider all these essential tools for keeping up with the latest ideas for my practice as a teacher librarian, Twitter is definitely my Number #1 favorite PLN tool. It is also a dynamite tool for enhancing my experiences at conferences. In fact, I rarely take notes at conference sessions any more. Instead, I tweet key points I hear during sessions and follow the tweets of other attendees, and these become my notes to look back to as I process my experiences.

In order to share my enthusiasm for the value of Twitter with my fellow CSLA (California School Library Association members), I have developed and am offering a free four-week online class, “Learn 2 Tweet: Build your Twitter talent 140 characters at a time” during the month of January. It starts January 5, and will run through February 1.  I timed it with the idea of preparing CSLA members attending the Centennial Conference in February to be active tweeters during the conference and to use it as a key PLN tool after that, but the course is open to anyone who either has never been on Twitter or who wants to come up to speed on using this social networking and personal learning network tool effectively.

To enroll in the course, fill out this Google form:
Or,  use this link:bit.ly/twitterclassenroll.

And, of course, be sure to register for the CSLA conference if you haven't already!

For more information about the course, visit the course site or contact me with questions. Please don’t delay signing up, as I am limiting enrollment to allow support of all participants.

I'm looking forward to getting to work with all the course enrollees in January! In the meantime, you can find me on twitter at @jane_librarian.

I'll blog about how the course is going in the coming weeks.

  1. The online course is now playing a vital role to provide education everywhere. LEED is one kind of online school. One can easily learn from it.
    They provide many course, but LEED CE is best course.
