Twitter: A Cultural Guidebook

Since attending the ADE Global Institute in Cork, Jabiz & I have been working on an iBook aimed to help educators get started with using Twitter for Professional Development.

We enlisted some of our friends in the Asia-Pacific region to help us make videos explaining how they use  Twitter, so it’s not just a case of, “Oh, there’s Keri-Lee going on about Twitter again.”

We built on the work of Rodd Lucier and his Seven Degrees of Connectedness, which we felt accurately described the stages one goes through when developing an online PLN with Twitter.

We worked with two talented and humble individuals: Rob Appleby, who created all the illustrations for the book; and Dave Caleb, who helped shoot our videos and intro media. Thank you both for your input! It was invaluable.

**UPDATE**

We are going through the process of publishing  now have the book published in the iTunes Bookstore!
