My ‘Twitter for PE-PD’ workflow using ‘Pocket’ and ‘Evernote’ #pechat

Pocket-logo unnamed

The #PEchat this week touched on how #physed teachers are using social media for personalised professional development. Id like to quickly share my simple workflow to funnel the mass of information on twitter into bite sized-readable chunks.

While scrolling through my twitter feed, I may come across quite a few articles or blog posts that sound interesting. On my phone, ill open the tweet (IMAGE 1), tap the share button (the one that looks like a sideways V) and send to my ‘pocket’ app (IMAGE 2 AND 3). Download this free cloud based app and try it out yourself. This way I can continue scrolling through my feed and keep adding to the pocket app. Once I get time, I’m able to head back, open pocket and read through the articles/posts I had saved. The great thing about pocket is that it formats the text to an easily readable size on your screen, which makes viewing a lot easier.

If the resource is something ill want to use later, I will again tap the share button in pocket and forward to my evernote account for safe filing. If you have read other posts on my blog you will know that I love this app and use it multiple times daily to stay organised and literally never forget a thing. There I can tag the article or post for future reference, or share with my department.

This simple workflow allows me to focus on particular areas of interest, rather than feeling bombarded with the mass of information off twitter (which is easy to do!)
