Transitioning to the role of an Instructional Technology Facilitator has renewed that commitment. In returning to reap the benefits of Twitter, I stumbled upon Twitter chats. Maybe stumbled isn’t the right word. I mean, I had heard of Twitter chats but just didn’t “get” the significance. Now, my PLN has grown significantly as a result of my involvement in these chats! If you haven’t tried one, I suggest you do. It is a place where educators from around the world can share ideas/resources/motivation/innovation...you name it and it can happen. I consider it my on-time, my time professional development.
Here are a few resources that can help you get started!
- Education Chats - A list by day and time of educational based chats.
- Twitter Chat 101 - Just what the name suggests - a guide for those new to Twitter Chats.
I challenge each of you reading this post to find a Twitter chat and give it a try! I promise you won’t be sorry!
