Last week we talked a lot about hashtags and Twitter chats. Hopefully you all have checked out some hashtags and found some that will be helpful. And maybe some of you have even found a Twitter chat in which to participate. Thank you for all the suggestions! In this week's reading, the authors suggest creating a school hashtag. I would like to challenge you all to come up with a classroom hashtag (or school or corporation hashtag if you are at the school or district level). Share some ideas of some things you might share via Twitter utilizing a hashtag. The authors also discuss sharing through blogs and YouTube videos. If any of you are doing this, please share your URLs so that others can learn from your example. If you're not doing either of these, do you see a use for these in your school or classroom?
We have a few people who have recently joined the conversation, which is great, but please make sure you have introduced yourself in the first week's post. This is the only way I know who you are and where you're from so I can send your PGPs at the end of the book club. If you have colleagues who would still like to join in the conversation, please tell them it's not too late. Just make sure they participate in all the past weeks' conversations.
For next week we will read "Key Connector 4 Give and Take...and Give Some More."
