Have You Chatted Lately?


August 17, 2012 by Brad Currie

Participating in Twitter chats on a weekly basis has been one of the most rewarding professional experiences in my twelve years of education. There is no doubt that these chats have become a “game-changer” in the world of education and enable barriers to broken down so that educators can collaborate and thus impact student learning in a positive way. Here are my top five education chats that will engage the mind and more importantly expand your PLN……..

1. #satchat (Every Saturday morning at 7:30am EST and 7:30am PST) Co-Founders/Co-Hosts: @bcurrie5 @scottrrocco

Engaging way for current and emerging school leaders to participate in a lively conversation about what matters today in the world of education. Soon the chat will be expanding to the west coast and will be moderated by @burgess_shelley @DCulberhouse @drjolly. Check out the website

2. #edchat (Every Tuesday at 12pm and 7pm)
Great chat on what matters most in schools. By far the most popular chat and hosted by some great minds in the field of education. Gain more insight on this Twitter convo from @ShellTerrell post
