I've just started listening to Rodd Lucier, The Clever Sheep, and his Teacher 2.0 podcast and have really come to like his style, and quick ideas for utilizing web2.0 and 21st century skills in the classroom. Yesterday, I came across his idea for #EDYELP, and it was great! Basically Twitter tracks topics and they get added to a trending topics list. Right now, even though educators are using Twitter like crazy, it never makes the list. So Rodd thought it would be a good idea to get on the Trending Topics list.
Here's the idea, with every Tweet you make today, include the hash tag #EDYELP. That way you can see who is following, what they are talking about and we can get our word out there! Check out his post on the subject - Yelp! (I love his reference to Horton!). Let's make our voices heard today!
