My Twitter journey
began in 2011 when I attended a conference in Lissabon, Edmedia 2011. This
conference has changed my behaviour on social media. I
attended a lot of workshops on different topics, ranging from connectivism to the
use of social media in education. In fact, I vividly remember a session on the use of Twitter. I still have some blogposts on that period. Out
of interest, I refer to them here and here. Since then I’ve been using
Twitter more extensively and have experienced the potential and the inspiring
character of the social medium for the professional development of
teachers. Illustrative of the power of the medium is the origin of an educational learning festival in Flanders (edushock). This festival was founded through people on Twitter. Talking about the power of connections.
“And we can build things together, things that can have a global impact in ways that were impossible a few years ago.” (Richardson & Mancabelli, 2011 p.3)
