What does teaching individuals and societies have to do with twitter?

I had a lunch meeting yesterday with a member of the Individuals and Societies department at my school.  He’s tinkering with ideas connected to be a connected learner.  He sees the potential in opening up, and collaborating with his colleagues just a tweet away.  But, like many of us, he recognizes that there are challenges to taking on one more platform.  So, I’ve tried to compile resources that would work to launch his experiment process with Twitter, and I thought I’d model what a PLN could do.  Here’s where you come in:  add resources for ISOC, IBGeo, IBEcon, or AP History in the comments.  What have I left off?
