Real Time Professional Development: Twitter Chats

Twitter Chats for Edtech 543
1. #denchat: Is a discovery educator network that has weekly chats and guest hosts from around the globe. This was my first Twitter chat, and I wasn’t very good at it, but I did enjoy it. For the most part, educators just chatted about ideas to enhance learning and student engagement. I asked for some advice about joining other PLN’s. I learned how to participate in a live chat and I made the mistake of not including the hashtag a few times, but I corrected that as I realized my error. I did get some great resources, and I followed a few of the participants.

2. #sunchat: Is a PD weekly chat that often has a theme to discuss. This week’s discussion was on authentic learning, but other topics came up. Very interesting, and I am definitely getting better at tweeting. I felt a little more comfortable, and I explored some of the profiles of the participants. I didn’t make as many mistakes as the first chat session, and I learned that there really are so many amazing, talented educators out there. I felt inspired all throughout the chat.

3. #techeducator: This was interesting. It was listed as a Twitterchat, but it is also a Podcast. So I listened and participated in both! The presenters were a bit goofy, but once they got down to business, it was interesting. I learned about an app that allows students to create puppet shows. I definitely want to utilize it.

4. #21stedchat: The best Tweetchat yet!! I felt more in control and I also felt comfortable with offering opinions and ideas. It was wonderful to discuss digital footprints because I had just learned this concept, and I felt like I could contribute.
