I feel like life today is sort of like this...

In 1997, my Superintendent told our graduating class two things: 1) Stay off of the internet. 2) Don't get into a stranger's car.
In 2016, I'm using my phone to gain internet access to get in a stranger's car.
In 1997, I had to call Domino's Pizza to order a pie and have cash ready.
In 2016, I can call, text, tweet, or send an emoji to Domino's; cash is discouraged.
In 1997, I had to get a travel agent to purchase a train ticket to get to college to get a paper course guide and stand in line (for eternity) to register for classes.
Today, not only do I pick my classes online, I take all of them online. I will defend my dissertation over Skype.
Right now, I can run almost every aspect of my life from my phone. How cool... or how sad?

Love it or loathe it, we have a responsibility to meet learners where they are today.
Besides meeting learners where they are, the community also has to be met where THEY are.
Schools today should be using:
Twitter = the best PD on the planet.
To the point.
If people want more, you add a link and they click.
Keeps you on message.
Fast. Free. Instant notification. Make it YOURS.
To the point.
Create different groups.
I don't want to go on every platform to send a message.
