Edu chats on twitter – Where and When?

So, twitter chats, here’s the deal –

You log on to twitter at a given time, follow the relevant hashtag and take part in a professional, structured chat about a specific subject. Or you can just lurk if you want to, who’s going to know? It’s also a great way to find interesting edutweeps to follow.

Generally, one person hosts the chat, posing the questions, retweeting and responding to them to develop the discussion.  It’s the ultimate teacher-led CPD and you can even take part in your pyjamas!

Here’s a list of the UK based edu twtter chats I know about, please tweet me @samschoolstuff to add any I have missed! All times in GMT/BST
