I enjoyed my first #SaskedChat and it definitely put me in the "Aha" Stage of the "Five Stages of a Twitter User." I couldn't believe how fast paced it was and was thankful that I was using the Tweetdeck. Initially I slowed it down but did not like constantly refreshing so I just went full speed ahead. I managed to keep up after I learned you can click on someone in a row and then you are able to scroll up or down to keep up with the Q & A.
I am a "short and sweet" type personality so the limited use of characters and the directness appeals to me. I also learned an invaluable lesson again. That is to learn to take a little information here and there as it passes by. You do not have to read every single word from every single participant. This is a hard lesson for me to learn as I am "Old School." I know as with all my skills practice and patience will help me learn this new digital citizenship skill. I know that when I am tired or frustrated I revert back to my old ways of learning/teaching and I need to stop and recognize this within myself.
