If u r in education & worry about percentages/numbers than u r just promoting yourself. Impact people not numbers.!that makes others better — Frank Martin (@FrankMartin_SC) June 23, 2014 And yet another reason I’m a huge Gamecock fan (other than my alumni status!) Sure wish our decision makers in congress got it.

Tuesday I was at a local district’s technology conference, UTC. Our Keynote, Chris Craft, challenged us to find some new voices; meet new people and learn from them. So I met (actually through the Twitter hashtag #UTC13) some new voices to add to my PLN. SWEEEEEET! Sometimes I forget to do that. @CathyJo, Born […]
So I ran across this tweet today, and was first sucked in after clicking the link when I realized Clemson (from right here in SC) is a partner sponsor. I also took a second look when the Anderson University is nodded as a sponsoring partner too, another SC institution, along with Indiana University of Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania State University.

Recently I received a request first via Twitter to participate in a professional development session for some librarians in Cincinnati, OH. My task is to answer a few questions, and leave myself open for a Q & A session afterwards, and that it shouldn’t take more than a half hour! Little did I realize until […]
Recently some of my Twitter friends had a discussion (as best that can possibly really happen in Twitter) about roles in schools and bringing social media to the table.

As I visited the many links to nominees tonight, I glimpsed my own face on one of the blogs—Bit by Bit by Bob Sprankle. Bob has a widget on his sidebar that is from the My Blog Log Reader Community. If you are a registered user, then the widget will show everyone other registered visitors […]
I hate when presenters ask the Twitter Networks to simply say hello to their audiences. I do like it when I’m asked to say hello and tell where I’m from, though, as this shows how far and wide reaching your network is. And I like it even better when folks ask for an opinion or […]
I’m a Twitter Fan Many know that I am a fan of Twitter. But honestly it is an “after-hours” tool for the most part for me. Twitter is blocked at school, and unless I want to ask a question to my network of Twitter friends during the work day, I don’t have time to login […]
Been looking at tweetclouds for some. This mashup (if that’s what it is called) is enlightening, and shows what our tweets are primarily centered on. By looking at my cloud, I must promote Twitter quite a bit, since that word is most frequently used in my tweets. ??? I know I ask for “hello’s” on […]
