Gr8tweets for the month of March

Gr8tweet.jpgFor the month of March, a group of educators and lifelong
learners will be picking a “Tweet of the day” and ReTweeting it with a
tag: #gr8t

Hopefully, you will join us in doing this too.

There are a number of reasons why you might want to participate:

• To share what you value about twitter.

• To see what others value about twitter.

• To celebrate the power and wisdom of your Personal Learning Network.

• To find interesting people to follow on Twitter.

My choice for what to retweet with #gr8t
will be a Tweet that I find interesting, or insightful, or humorous. It
might link to something I enjoyed reading, or it might have something
profound or even fortune-cookie-like that appeals to me:

There aren’t really any rules to participate: Find a tweet you value, and share it!

I started blogging in 2005 and found it such a powerful way to reflect and share my thinking about technology, this generation, and how we prepare students for their future not our past.

  5. I have to confess my tweet in your image is a RT from the gr8tweets twitter account. While writing my post I wanted to include an example of a “Tweet of the Day”.

    Unfortunately my example wasn’t great so David Truss helped out by tweeting a better example. The screenshot of his tweet didn’t work well in the post so I had to RT.

  6. My ‘suggestion’ translated into ‘critique’ when my Canadian English was converted to Sue’s Australian English! 😉

    Jokes aside, I think this speaks volumes of Sue to make the point in her comment, and I think it also says something about how important it is to share and share alike!

    Twitter really is about sharing. You give in order to get. Hopefully many insightful twitter users will join us in celebrating what we value in Twitter. It should be #gr8t!

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Laughing 🙂 but Dave was right. If you didn’t know the context of my example it was confusing. And I did feel guilty that people have RT my RT of his Tweet from gr8tweets twitter account when I was unable to fit in the tweet that I was RTing his tweet (is that a tongue twister?).

    Looking forward to an interesting month.
