Sask Ed Chat

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” – Helen Keller

This week I participated in my first online twitter chat. The chat that I chose to participate in was Sask Ed Chat. I chose this chat because I have had previous classes with Kelly Christopherson (leader of the chat) and he always suggested that we follow along. During my experience on this chat, I first noticed how crazy it was. I would not have been able to follow along and learn as much as I did without using tweetdeck. Tweetdeck allowed me to have 3 different twitter sites going at once. This is what my screen looked like during the twitter chat. I was able to view the main chat, other comments and my comments at the same time.

After I learned how to work the chat, I was able to contribute my knowledge towards the questions that were being asked. This was a pretty good experience because I was able to communicate with others online. I had other teachers commenting and adding suggestions on my posts and I was able to reply to other teachers comments as well. Since collaboration with other teachers is extremely important in this profession, using twitter chats allows you to communicate through technology.
