Except for ideas and services, what else would one not possessed of property or money have to give? Napoleon Hill
This comment resonates with me A LOT! My only resource for the last 2 years has been a broken Blackberry and a beat up old refurbished laptop. So I’ve done the only thing I could, which is put some time into exploring some ideas using the only resource available: my time.
I took the time to curate data and any curation has led to new ideas.
I have curated 42 Twitter Lists with over 11,000 people and accounts being added to these lists
After following various Twitter EdChats for a few months I found the chats and archives to be a rich source of fantastic links, articles and ideas… But the tweets when speeding by and, with 150 chats (in 2013 today there are over 400) it is a time consuming to access the archives. Since 2013 I have been looking for ways to organise this data in a more efficient and meaningful way.
2013 – I attempted to curate data from EdChats and ISTE2013 viaSpreadsheets
The value of taking the time to curate this information: 5 MUST Read ISTE2015 Posts
Through curating all this EdChat information I have developed a few resources for EdChats. As well as a Twitter list of EdChat moderators I have curated the following EdChat information
EdChat Calendar: I started adding to the information to the calendar that Jerry Blumentgarden and Tom Murray manage initially so that the US times were convered into GMT times. I then curated some additional information. This was imported into
EdChat Moderator Community: Established a forum on G+ for moderators to share resources and ideas around developing their EdChats
Given my interest in sales, EdTech and Twitter chats I found it curious that relatively few suppliers join Twitter chats and curated the social media links for ISTE suppliers in time for Connect an Educator Day.
I have mapped most of UK Education and have started to curate the information for US Education. More news to follow regarding our mapping project to follow soon.
