If you are in education, love technology, and want to advance the experience and options for student learning, the #edchat hashtag is for you. Ardent educators come together every Tuesday from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. and 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. (EST) to discuss topics voted on the day before. This is arguably the best place on the internet to feel the pulse of the education industry and understand its major obstacles, perspectives, and insight. Luckily, the OpenStudy team also gains our daily perspective from CSO Ashwin Ram who teaches at Georgia Tech. Because we are a technology startup, our value is greater during the first session which usually revolves around technology.
Be prepared because the #Edchat stream is fast! Hundreds of tweets a minute make it difficult to keep up with real time. That’s why we’ve taken the liberty to create a visual list of the top 20 tweets during the first session. Last week’s #Edchat was fantastic so it had to be covered. We’ll be there tomorrow, will you?
Topic: How do we best build community in classrooms using edtech? How do we define community?
To join in on the fun, set your search to #edchat and follow the community chat. If you’d like to add your input, just make sure to include #edchat into your tweet and you will have a chance to be one of the top twenty tweets of the hour!
