Over 2000 educators have participated in the #Edchat Tuesday discussions! Last week was momentous, as several educators and parents gathered to converse with special guest Alfie Kohn. Edchat became the 5th Twitter trending topic!
Keeping up with several people in a Twitter conversation can be difficult. Tweetgrid is one way to keep up with the discussion as explained thoroughly by Mary Beth Hertz’s post. However, Tweetdeck has some nice features as well for keeping up with hashtag discussions as I describe in this brief Screenr video tutorial.
In a previous #edchat post I mentioned some useful posts and links. I am additionally adding these blog posts, links, and tips to help you explore the edchat topics further and extend the conversation:
- For continuous summaries, follow @rliberni, @shellterrell, and @web20classroom.
- To add people who participate in the discussion, follow the #Edchat Twitter List. You can also check their tweets to ensure they are not spammers!
- Carol Tonhauser also has added a great post about edchat discussions!
- Teri Wilkins shares her favorite edchat quotes and thoughts in her blog.
- Follow Jerry Swiatek for continual archives of #edchat discussions with The Archivist software.
- Follow Tom Whitby, Steven Anderson, or me (ShellTerrell) to keep continuously updated with edchat topics and participate in the poll which decides the topic.
Join us in an #edchat discussion every Tuesday around 12pm EST and 7pm EST and leave a few comments on some of these posts!
