#edchat on Twitter

October 20, 2009

If you are an educator and you are looking for some serious conversation regarding education trends, you need to check out Twitter and you need to follow #edchat.

On Tuesday evening from 7-8 pm EST, teachers discuss a wide range of topics.  Last week, the topic was grades.  Is the current model of A, B, C, D, and F an appropriate model and if not, what would work better?  Even though the conversation is scheduled for an hour, the talk continued for at least an hour and a half.  At the end of the discussion, the entire conversation is archived for anyone who could not be present.

This is a fabulous way to engage in educational conversation.

Check out the site http://teacherbootcamp.edublogs.org/2009/07/30/what-is-edchat/ to find out more about the #edchat hashtag.

I look forward to seeing your thoughts on Twitter in the future.
