I have recently joined the Twitter world! I am still getting the hang of this social media platform, which might take some time. From what I have discovered so far, I think it will be a great platform for sharing and gaining new resources from other teachers. I enjoy looking better than tweeting, but that might change over time. I also realize that you have to share with others and not just look, so others can enjoy my resources too.
When joining the SaskEdChat I thought it would be more like a talking chat, but I was wrong! I think the chat was an interesting concept, but was personally not my favorite experience! I found it very overwhelming to read and keep up with even half of the things that were happening. That would probably change once I became more familiar with the platform, but it still has a lot happening. By the time I thought about my answer and typed it out, it was time for the next question! I seen a few peoples posts as they flew by, but not very many. I didn’t look at my notifications the whole time because I didn’t have time. Everything happened so fast! I am an auditory learner and I am a very slow reader, so I think this is why I was not a fan. I enjoy listening to people’s discussion better than reading a discussion!
Twitter is mostly typed posts with a few images, and I find things more intriguing when there are images. Pinterest on the other hand is very easy for me to enjoy because I can see a picture first and then read to find out more about the image or topic! For example, a menu at a restaurant, I will always look at the pictures first before reading the written options. This is just the person I am! For this reason, I think I will find it hard to LOVE twitter, but I will give it my best shot!
