Welcome back to another episode of the EduMagic podcast! Today I have Stephan Hughes and we are talking all about getting connected on Twitter! Stephan is the co-founder & co-moderator of the #nt2t chat. He is a blogger, teacherpreneur, teacher trainer, speaker, MIEE Expert, and Educational Technology Specialist. You can find more about Stephan here. During this episode, Stephan shares his teaching journey and how #nt2t (new teachers to Twitter) chat got started. I was surprised that it all started with a question.
Stephan shares why we need to get connected on Twitter. He goes onto share what a Twitter chat really is, how to be a meaningful participant, connect with hosts and attendees alike during a chat, and where to find the resources after that chat. We also share some of our favorite twitter chats during the show:
#NT2T (new teacher to Twitter)
#FutureTchat (future teacher chat)
#Edchat (education chat)
#Globaledchat (global education chat)
#CrazyPLN (crazy professional learning network)
#FF (follow Friday) a movement on Fridays where you share some of your favorite people and connections made on the platform with this hashtag.
This was a great episode to record and I learned a lot about connecting with others and building my PLN. Learn more about Twitter chats and getting connected with these resources:
