Jump on the Social Media Bandwagon??

I ran across this image while searching for a photo to use for a project I'm currently working on. It reminded me of a question someone posed on LinkedIn recently. The questions was, "how do you get more educators use social media to enhance their personal knowledge"?

I wish I had an easy answer. I was hugely unaware of this phenomenon taking place under my nose, in a sense. Of course I had heard of Twitter and other social media sites, but use them?? Not I said the cat. I just never realized the wealth of information being exchanged daily. The only reason I even started using these sites was because of my recent enrollment in a doctoral program in Learning Technologies.

I was interested in technology in terms of student learning- I never even seriously considered how these tools could enhance my own! Now that I have this toolbox of knowledge, how do I get my teachers to open it??? Well for now my answer is simply this- one tool at a time!
