Using social media to good effect.

Creating a PLN






Twitter is an on-line messaging service that allows you to send texts, pictures, & links to websites.

You can either Direct Message (DM) someone if you want to communicate privately or message including hashtags #, so that others can follow, and perhaps contribute.


You can use special apps available for ios or android to manage your Twitter account.

I use Tweetbot which lets me create lists that I follow.





You can follow other people as well as groups.

You can ‘favourite’ other people’s tweets, sharing them with your followers.

You can email/forward tweets to yourself too.


You could create a departmental twitter account or one for individual languages!

Pinterest is an on-line webpage which allows you to ‘pin’ onto boards your favourite websites.

You can have shared boards with other people.

You can follow other people’s boards too.


The more you use it the more it gets an idea of your interests and will feed you pins that you might want to see!
