When my podcasting partner, Lisa Nowakowski, aka NowaTechie, and I saw the application to become Social Media Champs for CUE last April, we were excited by the possibility of expanding our audience and getting to share what we do with a wider group of educators. We were also eager to exchange ideas and resources with other CUE members. When we got the call that we had been chosen to be Social Media Champs, we were over the moon.
The past six months have been a whirlwind. We were busy, that’s for sure. On top of our teaching/coaching duties, every week we posted an episode of the TLC Ninja podcast and an article to the OnCUE blog. Was it a lot of work? You bet. But it was worth it. We got the chance to write about tools and techniques we know and love for the CUE community, and we got to explore others we were curious about.
Working with the CUE team was an awesome experience and we loved every minute of it. Are we sad our six month gig is coming to end? Of course. But we are happy that someone else will get to take the reins and enjoy what we got to experience. Applications are open until Oct. 31 at http://blog.cue.org/smc/. Apply to be the next Social Media Champ. Take the risk. You’ll be glad you did.
As this is our last post for the OnCUE blog, Lisa and I would like to take a moment to say thank you to CUE for this opportunity. It’s been a blast!
