NAISAC11Community on Twitter

At this time, there are two Daily papers being produced from content shared through the NAISAC11 Community. One comes from content shared by @naisac11 and those that account follows. The other comes from the naisac11 List. As we get closer to the conference, a third paper will be produced which will come from content that has the #naisac11 tag. Below are the first few issues of each of these papers. They are full of resources and are well worth exploring. They are also a great example of how Twitter can reach far beyond the typical “status update” and become a viable part of your personal learning environment. Take a few minutes and explore what members of this community have been sharing.

We recommend that you subscribe to each of these. They will have stories in common but will also supply unique resources. By subscribing, you will receive a daily email link to the latest edition of the paper. Subscription is easy. Just go to any of the issues below and click the Subscribe button near the upper right. You will enter your email and type some strange word (a captcha to make sure you are human and not machine). That is it. You will then get the latest sent directly to your inbox every 24 hours.
