Twitter is a fantastic resource for teachers and even just in its every day form can be a brilliant way to exchange ideas – but one time when it really comes into its own is during chat sessions such as #UKEdChat where hundreds of tweeters converge to share ideas on a common topic for an hour.
It can, however be rather over-whelming.
Lots of people have asked for advice on how to get the most out of chat sessions so I thought I’d share with you how to use TwitterFall a free and easy to use tool which has revolutionised my approach to #UKEdChat which I participate in each week and could be used for any chat session.
I recorded a short video to show you around TwitterFall – I hope you’ll find it helps you to see Twitter Chat sessions as a fantastic CPD opportunity rather than simply information overload!
(This is my first screencast so please be gentle, but feedback – good and bad – would be much appreciated!)
In addition to this, I’ve put together a list of ideas for getting the most out of Twitter Chat sessions. Please take a look and share your ideas.
