CPDin140 – John Johnston

For once John Johnston (@johnjohnston on Twitter) finds himself on the other side of the mixing desk, having kindly volunteered to contribute his experiences to the project. John ranged broad and wide, introducing me to new concepts such as ‘continuing amateur development‘ and ‘opinionated‘ software. And what a wonderful way to close our chat:

That’s what Twitter’s about I guess; it’s good to talk.

Chris Bailey (@mrchrisjbailey on Twitter) sits only a couple of metres from me here at Sheffield Hallam. Although no longer teaching in the primary sector, Chris (a long time Twitter user) kindly volunteered to contribute his insights to my study. Chris noted that Twitter provides value in the ‘connections‘ it enables and the opportunities for ‘sharing‘ which open up, but we need to be conscious of whether it might also ‘distract‘ … although that might not necessarily be a bad thing.

Sara Thomas (@sarahdateechur on Twitter) was kind enough to hook up from the United States and talk about how Twitter helped her personal development and the role it plays in supporting the EduMatch community – an eclectic mix of social media channels which connects together a wide range of educators.

Joe Dale (@joedale on Twitter) discusses dropping in and out of Twitter, the life and history of the #mfltwitterati community and the trust it engenders between participants. A self-confessed experimenter, Joe’s recent tinkerings into Anchor (with Rachel Smith – @lancslassrach on Twitter) certainly (ahem!) hooked me.

Stacey Ramm (@tiffybum on Twitter) outlines some of the benefits Twitter provides for her, including how it helped her in getting a job. We also hear how she partitions the professional and personal sides of her life within social media, and how doing that contributed towards her memorable Twitter handle.
