The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Edchat is a discussion conducted on Twitter twice each Tuesday. The educational topics are chosen from a poll posted each Sunday night.There may also be a guest speaker, usually an Educational Expert. There are two chats to accommodate the global time zones. The first chat is at 12 noon EST and the second is at 7PM EST.The Chats are scheduled for an hour, but often carry on longer. People enter and leave at will. All chats are archived and may be accessed at a later time..
The chat contributors hashtag all of their comments with #edchat. All comments appear on the Twitterstream. The best way to view the chat in real time is to filter it through a search for #edchat. Only edchat tweets will appear as they are posted. Tweetdeck or Tweet Grid are excellent tools to use for this purpose. Anyone on Twitter may participate.It is a fast paced discussion with a limit of 140 Characters for responses.Edchat was founded by Shelly Terrell, Steve Anderson and Tom Whitby..

Thank you Tom. I opened tweetdeck immediately and set up a column for it.
@hoprea made a great suggestion to me last week, which is to use both www.tweetchat.com as well as Tweetdeck. It is a great combination. I followed the chat in Tweetchat, where it is easier to read, but was alerted to Mentions by Tweetdeck.
Oh this is good to know! I'll have to try that. Thanks for the info!
