Participating in #EdChat

2012-03-15_1318

Twitter has become a great resource to me and to many other teachers in the world. Not at all that it was designed for us, but it became a world in which so many people were getting together that teachers eventually just found each other, and not so much created #EdChat, as let it happen.  The original concept of twitter was strange (updating what you are doing from anywhere and at any time), but what it has turned into is an amazing resource.  Once teachers became involved with each other on twitter, they formed groups, and eventually started holding regular meetings to discuss and share with each other.  #EdChat (yes, the “#” is supposed to be there) is a chat created by educators for educators that takes place on Twitter using the hashtag #EdChat.
