Twitter Chats are where so much of our education learning can be found on Twitter. But how do we find a Twitter chat that interests us?
There are literally hundreds of Twitter chats online. A group of generous educators has created a list of chats that is organized by time. You can find it here.
A sample of the chats this evening looks like this.
If you are new to Twitter chats, you might feel more comfortable just watching a chat and learning how the questions are posted (often in a Google Doc or image at the beginning of the chat, and in Tweets using Q1, Q2, etc.)
For example, here is Q5 from #onedchat:
When answering a Twitter Chat Question, we use A1, A2, A3 – depending on the question number. Here is an example of A5 from #onedchat.
Activity for learning:
Find a chat related to your interests in education. Make it a habit to follow the tweets. When you feel comfortable, contribute to the chat by answering one of the questions. Remember to use the proper Twitter chat conventions – the chat hashtag (e.g., #onedchat), and “A” with the number of the question you are responding to. This is a great way to build your PLN as you converse online about a topic that is of interest to you.
