This week I continue to use Snapchat as my video editor to vlog some of my snap stories on personal learning.
As well as continuing with the disheartening job search, I have been using this week to read more books (I’m now reading Drucker’s The Learning Organization) as well as write an ebook on Snapchat. I started the book last year and as I’ve noticed more people in my field start to use the tool, I thought I’d best finish the book so that it could be a resource for people.
I also published the March edition of the Activate My Learning Newsletter and curated various resources in social learning and curation that I found valuable.

So here are this week’s Snap stories…
Monday 27 February 2017
For Monday Meanderings, I talked about the need to create the eBook on Snapchat for Learning and talk about the process by which I am doing this and why I started it.
Tuesday 28 February 2017
For Tuesday Book Club, I share my review on how disappointing I found the book by Tim Ferriss called The Tools of Titans. It was one of my most highly engaged snaps and the general consensus was that I had “saved money” for my viewers who were contemplating buying this book.

For Work Out Loud Wednesday, it was the first time I had done a snap story with me talking straight into camera. It was more of a monologue really where I talked about how we get wrapped up in insignificant questions where we focus on the tools and now how social tools can be used for our individual context and application. The snap story was a result of various online discussions about Instagram Stories vs Snapchat Stories and how these questions shouldn’t be asked if you’re using the tools for personal learning because it’s dependent on a variety of factors and what value YOU get out of the tool – not what someone else tells you (especially by people who never use the tool themselves)…
Hint: Never trust people who tell you about a social tool or network if they haven’t used it or are social themselves.

For Training Tip Thursday, I share how I use Snapchat as a video editor (effectively a vlog) for sharing my work, working out loud and to create a repository or digital portfolio of my work and thinking. In effect, a chronological and visual representation of my daily work – a dynamic CV.
Friday 3 March 2017
That is still a work in progress and usually a more fun snap story. Guess you have to be on Snapchat to find out more 😉
