I have been a part of Facebook since it was required to have a college ID and had to be a part of a college network. Granted, I was taking continuing education courses to get my Michigan teaching certificate (after recently moving to Michigan from Arizona), but I had a college ID, nonetheless. So, for me, I’ve been a part of this social media frenzy for a while.
Twitter was introduced to me a few years ago and I was really into that for a while and I let that die down, as life took over. I got married, and all of a sudden had a built in audience. My husband! Only recently, have I rejoined the old “Twitterverse” and made a name for myself amongst many edtech chats. I have some favorite chats and hashtags. Try ’em! I bet you’ll like ’em!
CHATS: #sunchat (Sunday chats – one of my favorites), #TMchat (Thinking Map chats), #edslowchat (a slow chat that allows all week to respond), #tlap (Teach Like a Pirate) and #learnLAP (Learn Like a Pirate)
HASHTAGS: #tlap, #learnLAP, #geniushour, #makingthinkingvisible
Each chat offers something new. What do they all have in common? Educators around the world who support teaching, learning, best practices, and a love of the student. If you get a chance, find me and follow me (@zonie71). You’ll find me around the Twitterverse working on my PLN!
