Twitter chats provide educators with an opportunity to connect and grow their PLN (personalized learning network) based on shared interests. A Twitter chat or tweet chat is a live, real-time, Twitter event where a group of Twitter users meet at a predetermined time to discuss a specific topic using a designated hashtag (#).
One of “40 education twitter chats worth your time” - Diana Fingal, ISTE blog
TeachersFirst's Twitter chats are one of the best ways for educators to connect with other educators, exchange ideas, reach out for help, and provide assistance. You will find great new resources and be motivated to take action. They are ‘pajama-compatible’ professional learning events that provide a great non-threatening way to meet new people with similar interests. While you can participate without contributing to the conversation, you will get more from the activity if you share. Keep in mind that traditional networking social customs apply—courtesy and respect.
