Now that you are connected via Twitter and starting to share resources via Diigo and Twitter, the next step is to find some networks that are specifically focussed on teachers connecting in order to create global projects.

With all the skills you now have from negotiating sites like Twitter and Diigo, you should be able to figure out the key features of these two sites in order to:

  • sign up and create your own profile
  • find others to connect with
  • leave comments on other teachers profiles
  • post your own projects
  • join relevant groups
  • get ideas for your own projects
  • find the help sections (Skype for Educators has 3 great intro videos at the bottom of their homepage plus they are on Twitter and Facebook)
