#anz23mthings Twitter Chat 3: Round up

13 Jul

Big thanks to everyone who joined our chat on Tuesday. It was great to have so many voices sharing ideas and opinions! Our topic was Plugged In: the pros & cons of always being connected. Amongst other things, we discussed the benefits of being connected, including while mobile, and the greatness of social media for connecting and sharing with others. We thought about playing nicely online to protect yourself and your work/association’s image. It seems we want to master making mobile connectedness – and social media itself – work for us, and not be used by it. We agreed that being connected must be balanced carefully with unplugged time, and it was great to hear how and when people disconnect.
The chat was just how we like it: fast, insightful, humorous and helpful 🙂

Here are the questions we discussed:

Q1. Mobile devices mean we can be connected ALL the time. What are the positives? #anz23mthings

Q2. What are the negatives? #anz23mthings

Q3. How and when do you disconnect? #anz23mthings

Q4. Is your social media image one of your most valuable job-seeking tools? #anz23mthings

Q5. Do you worry about how your social media image may represent your employer? #anz23mthings

The archived chat is very long, so we have put it on a separate page. We’re disappointed (nay, annoyed!) to reveal the Data Gremlins have eaten the first hour, so unfortunately we only have from 7.30pm (AEDT) onwards. To be precise, we can’t make GrabChat collect the first hour despite many attempts, by many, on many devices, on many browsers. #grrrr
(If you have any hot tips as to how to recover these tweets, please direct message @anz23mthings. Thanks!)

That aside, we’d love to hear what you thought of the chat!

Please leave us a comment 🙂

What a great chat! #anz23mthings Twitter chat 2

30 May

Thanks to everyone who was able to join in on our chat last night – it was really fantastic to be able to discuss “Smartphones have bridged the digital divide.” We thought a little bit more about what the digital divide is, and how libraries can help bridge this gap by providing access to information technology, and helping users become information literate.

Here are the questions we discussed:

  • Q1. Are smartphones cheap enough to bridge the income divide or adequate as a PC substitute? #anz23mthings

  • Q2. What do you think the digital divide is? #anz23mthings

  • Q3. Do you think there is a digital divide in Australia or NZ?  If so who is affected and how can libraries help combat this? #anz23mthings

  • Q4. Does having a smartphone mean that you have bridged the digital (device) divide or is it more than that? #anz23mthings

  • Q5. Anything else? #anz23mthings

We also discussed MOOCs in passing, which was a fabulous digression. Maybe we might discuss MOOCs a bit more in another discussion or in our next Twitter chat!

Because the archived chat is very long, we have put it on a seperate page.

So what did you think of the chat?

Wow, what a chat

17 May

Last night the hour flew by as a group of us gathered and chatted about libraries, avatars and personal vs professional accounts.

Wondering what we talked about? or want to go back and re-read the tweets at a less frantic pace?. Note: We stopped recording at 8:20pm (AEST).

Due to the length of this post we have moved it to its own page.
