PLNs + Hashtags = Opportunities for Growth

If you use Twitter as a part of your PLN, you need to know that there's more to it than just following people.  All those @individuals or @groups are important and they help you build connections.  But there is a wealth of knowledge lurking behind those #s.  Hashtags (#) are invaluable for grouping topics and ideas.  One of the most powerful uses of #s is to identify educational "chats".......Groups of people "meeting" together online to discuss topics.  Even if you can't make the scheduled chat time, you can search for the # and catch up on the discussion when you have time.

Below is a link to an article by Jeff Dunn that discusses 20 chats that educators need to check out! So.....get busy....check it out!    #go  #whatareyouwaitingfor   #timesawasting   :)
