Alright I finally gave in, I joined the website I have resisted for so long. Twitter. I don’t know if anyone could have made it through today’s ecmp class without a change of heart on the matter. A principle Skyped in today and said that he would hire someone with an online profile over someone who didn’t, and someone with twitter was even more likely. My future seems to depend on this life-posting website. Alright it’s more of a resource gathering, connection making tool. And it is good. Twitter is a good thing, there I said it.
Why did I resist? I was just sick of having SO MANY accounts and passwords and things I needed to check up and keep up on, when I can’t even keep up with all the connections in my real life. Excuse my words, I mean physical life. The web is real life too, it’s just through the technology. BUT if this is so important to many great educators, then it will be great for me too.
So my name is iblaina, check me out in a few days because there isn’t really anything to look at right now. Send me a message if you want! Wait, can you do that? With the @ sign or something? I’ll figure it out :).
