The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators


...on board developing a Wikipedia article on #edchat - I feel a little confused about the at least (?) two sessions that are held, when and where weekly topics are decided upon, etc. - so, yes, I am looking forward to your input as to what belongs into a brief & informative #edchat Wikipedia article:

Suggested article structure: Idea - Origin - Topics - Sessions - How to participate

Thanks ever so much, Mary! - 1) I will add Steven's blog entries tagged #edchat as a footnote. - 2) I'll think about the poll URL problem - in my opinion it really should be in the same place every week to give regulars and non-regulars easy access to participate in the process. - 3) I'll put both delicious and dii links tagged #edchat as a footnote. - 4) Not sure about the 3rd party apps - this is not really what the article is about; maybe the three you mention can be put as footnotes? - 5) You are right about the lightning speed - however, I would leave this experience to those joining the movement, as this may be criticised as being too subjective.
Are you all okay with your ideas and tips showing up on http://www.edchat.org?
Oh dear, the first draft of the Wikipedia article was deleted by a moderator within minutes. His reason was "lack of notability". If you want to weigh in, please do so: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Alexf#edchat_article
The article was to be here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edchat, and here's a brief standard explanation of the moderator's reason for deleting it ("A7"): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:CSD#A7
So it looks like we need to dig up some articles from the #140 conference to establish more notability. I'm sure we could also link to interviews such as NMHS_Principals or Tom's.

Has there been any other publication that has mentioned these weekly chat sessions? It's possible I may have contributed another in January, as I was interviewed a few days ago by a reporter for Education Week and #edchat was one of the topics we covered...

Sorry I don't have a minute to look up links for the items above. Anyone have these links handy?
The main reason why the first draft was deleted was "lack of reliable sources" - these are explained here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:RS - the main point seems to be that blogs etc. are not regarded as "reliable" (which makes sense, in a way...) - so: who knows of "reliable sources" not failing the Wikipedia definition of "reliable sources" on #edchat?

Here is an article from Converge magazine, http://www.convergemag.com/edtech/One-Hashtag-Helps-Educators-Chang...

T.H.E Journal February 2010 issue I am having trouble getting a link to that article.
