1. Here's a short case study in sharing work and making connections via social media
  2. It starts when I designed your assignment for Class 3 @EdMethods. I including this lesson I created @TED_ED. I based it on the work of Sam Wineberg and the Stanford History Group. Of course, I gave them credits.
  3. I included the TEDed Lesson in your Class 3 post @EdMethods to flip part of your Class 4 assignment. 
  4. Then I Tweet about our class. I add hashtags for all the tools I used in the lesson to attract a broader audience. 
  5. I use our Class 3 assignment (including the TEDEd lesson) as the basis of a post on my blog. I refocus the post on a broader question - how to create a more student centered classroom - to make it relevant to a larger audience. 
  6. Then I tweet about my blog post. Different hashtags to broaden reach to teacher education groups.
  7. Then Sam Wineburg of Stanford History Group spots the work on TEDed and posts a congratulatory Tweet.
  8. His tweet was picked up and retweeted and / or favorited repeated times. 
  9. Then I thank Wineburg and SHEG with this Tweet. I include a @EdMethods to steer the dialog back to our class blog.
  10. The curation of the social media dialog into this Storify archive becomes an artifact which I post on my blog. I send out a Tweet.
  11. Sam sees he is quoted in our Storify, and he sends out a Tweet
  12. When our project is finished I turned it into a blog post
  13. I then shared the project / blog post on Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Facebook.
