Alex NetLit is a fictional persona created by the Network Literacy Community of Practice. Alex was created to serve as a guide to Military Families Service Professionals, Cooperative Extension professionals and others seeking to learn more about using online networks in their work.
Alex is a 30-year-old divorced mother of two who works as a federal-agency professional providing educational information and other types of self-help to her clients. We hope she will give voice to the excitement and the skepticism, the delight and the frustration many of us experience when engaging in online networks.
Think of Alex as a device — an imaginary character developed to help us focus on the millions of people striving to become comfortable with and fluent in the skills and tools of 21st-century communications.
You can follow Alex NetLit on Twitter. Please feel free to ask her questions, re-share her tweets and share your experiences with her. If you prefer, here’s a more visual depiction of Alex’s tweets via Twylah.
