I’ve been using Twitter for quite a while now, and I think it’s a great way of building up a network of like-minded people. I’ve lost count of the number of cool web applications and tips I’ve got from people via Twitter. There are some very experienced educators out there talking about IWB’s as well as cool uses of Web 2.0
It seems like many companies are finally embracing Twitter as a way of releasing information. In recent weeks both Smart and Promethean have started using it. It will be interesting to see how much will be two-way dialogue with users, and how much will just be pushing out press-release or company info. Only time will tell. Promethean have already been posting sneak peaks of the ActivStudio 4 Beta, which looks interesting.
If you do want to follow Smart on Twitter they are on there as MySmartSpaces and Promethean is on there as Activtweets and also as Activeducator. Worth keeping an eye on them anyway. And of course, I am on there as Dannynic if you want to add me to your following list.
Last post of 2008. I’m looking forward to 2009. I’m at the ASE conference again next week, then it’s time for BETT09. Should be some good stuff on show again this year I hope.
So thanks for following this year, and I wish you all a very happy 2009!
