How can you possibly have a productive conversation in 140 characters?
I get it: The skepticism about having a "real" conversation in phrases, acronyms, abbreviations, and hashtags. Yet as counterintuitive as they may sound, Twitter chats work. They work because they are catalysts, because they introduce ideas for change, because they are constellations of resources. But perhaps more than any other quality, these chats connect teachers in ways that create communities.
I look forward to our #TchLIVE chats knowing I get to hear from new-found colleagues. The real beauty of Twitter chats and #TchLIVE is that you never need an invitation — you're always welcome. If you haven't joined us yet, take a peek at our archived discussion from a recent chat, and then mark your calendar for our next one. (It’s on Nov. 13th. We’re chatting about the book, How We Learn.) As a spectator or as a participant, you will enjoy the collective wisdom of amazing teachers.
