Looking for a great opportunity to engage in meaningful discussion with educators from across the country? And do it all from the comfort of your home or your favorite coffee shop?
Then you need to check out twitter chats. Twitter chats are discussions held through Twitter by users who decide to meet in the Twitterverse at designated time and share answers to questions. Twitter allows users to filter posts through hashtags found in the body of the tweets. Twitter chats take advantage of this filtering by using a hashtag in every question or answer that is part of the chat.
As a twitter user you can simply search for the twitter chat’s hashtag, and view everybody’s answers (the sit and listen approach), or you can dive into the discussion by tweeting answers to the questions with the hashtag.
There will be a great opportunity to try a twitter chat led by ISD’s very own Liza Rickey this Sunday (October 22) starting at 7. This twitter chat will focus on Family Engagement. Their hashtag will be #WATeachLead .You can expect to get a lot ideas and resources by following along. It is also a great opportunity to connect with educators and bring their experience to your own practice.
