Most of the bloggers that I follow use Twitter to a much greater extent than I do. In all honesty, I can barely claim to “use” Twitter at all; I think I only average about one tweet a week. I can see how Twitter can be a useful part of a personal learning network, but I haven’t gotten there yet.
A while ago, I came across a post on Michele Martin’s blog that suggested keeping a one-line professional development blog. When I found it, I thought to myself, “This is a way I could use Twitter.” I keep meaning to try it out, but I just haven’t made it a priority. Really, what I need is a 30 day challenge for Twitter, so I’m going to try to challenge myself. I’m going to commit to keeping a one line professional development blog using Twitter. This week’s challenge is for consistency. The goal is to tweet daily about something I accomplished related to my professional development. If you are on Twitter and want to follow me, I’m “kamccollum”. At the end of the week, I’ll reflect on my progress and see what I’ll come up with for the next challenge.
