Let’s tweet it!
It is common to think that in the digital world relationships between people have become weaker. It is an idea I used to have myself until I had the chance to experience the value of social network connections. It allows you to create your own network of information providers. You can follow the newspaper whose headlines you’ll always find interesting, discover what is going on, learn more about topics that are important to you, engage in conversations with people you share interests with. Everything in real time. In fact, I feel that this is one of the reasons it has become so popular. You can share your opinions, links and thoughts on any subject quickly and within seconds.
The value of this for the language learner is impressive. Your training will become more social, as you will be interacting in real time even outside the classroom. Why not create a network with other language learners to share information with ? Why not create a sense of community with a shared #hashtag?
Reasons to join #one_click:
You’ll have the chance to use English anytime, anywhere.
You’ll become globally competent. Tweeting is like being able to communicate via text with anyone in any country at any given time.
This is the idea that triggered creating #one_click conversations on twitter. I will regularly post a conversation topic, with a question that should be the starter of the debate. The hashtag #one_click will identify the conversations that originate in this blog. If you want to follow the conversation suggested all you have to do is:
- Log in to twitter with your twitter account.
- Search the conversation by clicking on the hashtagged #one_click; or tweeting #one_click, which means posting this hashtag on the tweet.
- Once you have found the conversation you can post your own ideas, (140-character messages). You can also reply to other people’s tweets or simply follow the thread of the conversation.
OUR FIRST #one_click conversation COMING SOON!
