Following a Twitterchat

My initial thoughts on this mod, which focused on using Twitter in education, was that I would breeze through it easily, since I am a veteran Twitter user. However, prior to this, I had never really explored the educational chats and accounts. I follow several teacher accounts on my personal account, but I had never participated in a chat or really delved into looking through other educators accounts. So needless to say, I was on a sensory overload when I began browsing through different accounts and chats and what I thought had been ten minutes of browsing through tweets turned into an hour.
I decided to follow the #ELTchat. ELTchat is a platform for new and old teachers alike to share their thoughts, ideas, questions, and experiences with each other. It is a place where teachers from all over the world can connect with each other to network and grow their professional learning network. I think #ELTchat is a great resource for teachers to be apart of. I am new to the whole Twitter chat thing though, so I think I need some more time to explore what else is out there as well as follow a live Twitter chat to see what it is all about.

    Unless you follow a live Twitterchat, you are missing a great opportunity for professional development.
