Twitter Chats for Learning Easy vs. Hard

My Island View

One Education Twitter chat that precedes all others is #Edchat.

On more than one occasion the owners of the chats presented me with a number of questions they wanted to post over the course of the chat. It was founded July 30, 2009 and has run continuously ever since.

Twitter Equals Growth Mindset?

The Principal of Change

This could be something to applied the idea of educators using Twitter. With the Twitter now implementing video in the service, it will be something that people will not only be open to learn, but I am sure will do interesting and new things with. It is probably one of the reasons why Twitter moved from the idea of “what are you doing”, to “what’s happening” in the update box. For those reasons Twitter will never connect all educators.
