As part of our monthly challenges at AHS and something that we have wanted to do for a while, we are having our first district Twitter Edchat. At 8pm on Tuesday, November 17 we will be using the hashtag #AmesCSDchat to conduct an Edchat with teachers in Ames. This will be a great learning experience for those new to Twitter chats and will offer us a chance to have conversations that we don’t normally get to, due to time or location.
Twitter chats are a great way to connect with other people and have conversations over the same topic. There are some major chats out there, #iaedchat is every Sunday morning and night, but this will offer us a chance to have a conversation with our own teachers.
Cybraryman has some great resources related to Twitter chats at http://ift.tt/Vk8o7C
I made two videos to get people ready, the first is a general overview and the second is how you can get Tweetdeck set up for this. Make sure you have your full name visible and you have a real profile picture, instead of that egg.
Come ready to learn together and have some great conversations.
