The most remarkable experience I have on Twitter, and it’s right up there with the very best learning experiences I’ve ever had over my lifetime as an educator, an astrophysicist, and a learner, is #edchat. Every Tuesday night at 7:00 pm Eastern Time, I join hundreds of educators from across the planet that get comfortable in front of their computers—a very local and personal experience—and have a global, free-for-all conversation about education. The operation of Twitter as the vehicle for communication quickly recedes into the background, and you enter into a world of rapid-paced vibrant conversations with folks as committed as you to sharing important ideas. You leave with new thoughts, new directions, a reinvigorated sense that the issues of importance to you are also important to others—providing a common bond, and you embrace friends you’ve never met but that you deeply understand.
Join us for #edchat, #sschat, and #psychat!
