A blog reflecting on how to use free online technology in teaching English as a foreign language.
Ha! Well, I'm still not going to twitter or tweet... I'm hope I'm not a twit, but I'd rather not be followed by anyone.Birds tweet, digital natives may twitter, but I was born some 50 years ago... and whilst I hope I'm doing my best to keep up with technology, I really can't see why anyone would want to tweet or twitter.Sorry.
No need to be sorry, John :)This is not directed at you primarily, this goes out to our local community:John is most certainly not alone :) Does anyone else at MELTA twitter? I have yet to meet anyone posting tweets. So given our 270 members or so, I'm probably a minority of less than 1%. True, I'm sometimes a wee bit frustrated that the local crowd doesn't even comment on this blog (which is so easy it's a no-brainer), so it feels like a dead duck. Perhaps that's why I personally need to be in touch with teachers who are connecting online and sharing inside news. I follow bright heads, and there are tools like hashtags to simplify finding related posts. Many of our visitors to this blog come through my own tweets on http://www.twitter.com.annehodg. Yes, Twitter is time consuming and it's a new variety of eavesdropping and I don't really want to know everybody's inside jokes and would sometimes prefer to cut to the chase.... But still, I know of no better way to keep up with the Joneses in EFL.
