While we may not advocate Twitter for younger students as a tool for social networking or communication, it certainly is a tool that connects professionals in a unique way. For me, Twitter has opened up windows to the world beyond my wildest perceptions. As a teacher, I look at Facebook as a family and friend communication tool, one that keeps you close without regard to actual distance. Linkedln serves as the social communication tool that connect you to your professional colleagues to aide you in collaboration about your work. Twitter on the other hand is your communication with individuals you don’t know but wish you had been close to in high school or college, but those that you follow for ideas and information to keep up in an ever changing world.
Hillary states and supports all of this so well speaking before a group in California remarking that “Innovation is one of America’s greatest values and products…..That’s why the United States in the Obama Administration is such a strong advocate for the “freedom to connect.”
View this videos to see these remarks and more that indicate development involves using these tools of communication which will make a difference in innovation and opportunity. She states and gives evidence of how, regardless of interests, technologies that connect the human mind with human mind make for a better tomorrow, just as they are doing in the world we live in today!
Innovation and Technology Lead to a Better Today and Tomorrow
