Twitter #EdChats: Global Collaboration for Better Education

Screen Shot 2015-10-19 at 6.10.08 PM

WHO: Teachers and Administrators who are looking for new ways to learn more about education, from fellow educators.

HOW: If you do not have a Twitter Account, you should.  Even if you are just “lurking” (reading everyones tweets without participating in the conversation), you will still pick up a wealth of knowledge. Teachers are a group that love to share,  especially with other like-minded individuals.  There are chats on Twitter every night on a wide variety of topics.  If there is something a teacher is remotely interested in, take a look at see if there is a chat about it.  You may just find that there are others from all around the globe that have been trying new things in their classrooms and would love to make suggestions.

WHEN: A full calendar of upcoming chats is available to see here: https://sites.google.com/site/twittereducationchats/education-chat-calendar

Having participated in Educational Chats over the past few years, I would recommend that you use TweetDeck which allows the user to create columns that focus on specific criteria, such as an account, hashtag, notifications, and more.  I typically have a column for my notifications so that I am sure to respond to all direct comments to myself. A column for the chat itself, that way you can see the flow of conversation, and also a column for the chat moderator.  This way you can see the Chat Topics as they are opened for discussion.
