How to Participate in a Twitter Chat (and Why You Should)

Blogger Vicki Davis (@coolcateacher) has a great, short-but-sweet guide to getting involved in one of Twitter’s many education-related chats.

There are many Twitter directories out there, but I like this public Google Doc organized by time.

Twitter chats are a great way to get (and stay) engaged with other educators, learning from their experiences and sharing their ideas. The volume of educators participating means that input comes from many different areas, and Twitter allows for connection on a local, specific level as well as on a really broad, world-wide level.

Get more info about #chats (including archives) from THE Journal.
