28 Days of OLLIE: Day 3

I don't know about you, but I spent a good chunk of yesterday digging my way out of the snow. The good news is I don't believe that the groundhog saw his shadow yesterday so spring is just around the corner, right? Right?
Day 3
Yesterday, we focused on connecting with the community via announcements. These announcements are the best way to stay up-to-date on community events and activities. Today focuses on how the OLLIE Community helps keep members informed and connected via social media like Twitter and Diigo.
It's Day 3 of the 28 Days of OLLIE and Mr. Miller didn't have time to look at the daily announcement during the day. However, as he lays in his bed looking at the phone he takes a few minutes to review its contents.
The announcement focuses on two additional ways that community members can connect with each other. One is Twitter and another is Diigo.
Twitter is a microblogging tool where individuals can write 140 character messages and post it so that others can view it. The announcement includes several different resources to help people new to Twitter get started. After reviewing the information, Mr. Miller downloads the Twitter app to his phone, does a search for the #28OLLIE, and looks at what others community members have been posting on twitter.
Diigo is the other tool that is introduced. It allows members of a group to bookmark and annotate articles. The OLLIE community uses it to share articles about online/blended learning with each other and sometimes discuss them with each other using the annotation feature. Mr. Miller takes view the tutorials, download the diigo app to his phone, and finally review some articles that the community has annotated in the past.
