What’s a Twitter Chat, and How Does It Work?

A Twitter chat is a conversation that happens on Twitter. It's hosted by people who are interested in a particular topic. The hosts pose a series of questions that trigger conversation between the participants. There are hundreds of Twitter chats every month, and this article will help you learn how to participate.

Whether you’re a newbie or have had a flexible classroom for years, chat with us on August 9 to give yourself plenty of time to redesign your room for the start of the school year.

Happy to see this opportunity for sharing. However, we in Hawaii are likely to be out of the loop because of the time zone difference. Due to our geographic isolation from the mainland, social media is an important link for communication and collaboration. Would appreciate some events that are more inclusive of Hawaii's educators. Aloha!

Thanks for the feedback, Jackie. I don't think there's an easy answer though. Edutopia's community is spread across the country and the world, and there are already many, many Twitter chats already on the books. Finding a day & time that works with both of these considerations is a challenge.

We do hope to create an article out of what people share during the chat and there's also the option of going back through the tweets directly, so the learning will be available to be explored at a later time. Also, if you have any specific questions about a particular topic, we're happy to direct you to any relevant resources we know about.
