Day 7: Adding Value – Attending Conferences from a Distance

Social note taking is the process of recording what you are learning in social media so that many people can learn with you.

During education conferences, attendees take notes on Twitter so that those who are unable to attend in person can learn from the Tweets.  The culture is participatory, so that conversations emerge from the Twitter stream among educators who are separated geographically.

As an example, #AELI15 has been Storified here

Some other recent examples in Ontario include #BIT15, #YRDSBQuest and #eladsb (for a learning session).

As you build your digital literacies for connected learning, think about some other ways you might use Twitter to spread learning.
