The Twitter Cohort is a preparatory event for the Personal Finance Virtual Learning Event. This 3-day learning event will include daily hour-long Twitter chats.
The Twitter Cohort Lite is a free learning experience presented by the Military Families Learning Network Personal Finance team and eXtension Network Literacy Community of Practice that takes a new approach to introducing people to the social network Twitter by:
Immersing participants in the culture to build a sense of social comfort
Creating a community of learners to build a sense of social presence and promote social learning
Providing “guides” to help learners find their way
In the Twitter Cohort Lite, you will learn by doing. Over the course of 2+ weeks:
You’ll build your Twitter personal learning network centered around your interests.
You’ll engage in conversations with a Twitter community that starts with your fellow cohort members and reaches across the world.
You’ll start online relationships that will last into the future.
You’ll begin to see how Twitter can be used for teaching, learning, and connecting.
Our “guides” and your fellow Cohort participants will provide support throughout the session. You can ask for help and get advice by tweeting using the hashtag #twittercohort.
