Twitter Fiction in High School

I’m sharing the presentation I gave at IPS last May during the school’s book fair.  It was a real challenge to speak to an audience composed of almost a hundred teenagers. They didn’t take it seriously at first. Fiction? On Twitter? But the compelling pun on words, extreme brevity, multiple meanings and intertextuality did the trick! Far from being easy to read, these microstories required their full attention and language awareness. Amazing how much we can do with 140 characters!

PD 2.0: Hot on Facebook and Twitter

I was really surprised this morning when I received an e-mail from SlideShare saying:

Professional development 2” is being talked about on Facebook more than anything else on SlideShare right now. So we’ve put it on the homepage of SlideShare.net (in the “Hot on Facebook” section).
Well done!
– SlideShare Team

A couple of hours later I received a similar one saying that it was also in the “Hot on Twitter” section.

I’d really like to thank all of you for spreading the word on this presentation. It has been a great way of expanding my PLN and finding more like-minded colleagues to share and learn from.

I’d also like to invite you all to join the open group on Facebook: Professional Development 2.0
