Twitter Chats as a Resource

Have you ever heard a colleague say, “Twitter is silly and I don’t know why anyone would use it!” This year I’ve discovered the value of Twitter and building a PLN (Personal Learning Network). Thanks to the many professionals in my network I’m exposed to NEW Terms and Educational Technology at a faster pace. Today I learned about SmackDowns and its benefits during a Twitter #Satchat (hashtags help user easily find specific conversations).  A SmackDown is a 2 minute “Show and Tell” sharing information about websites, Tech tips or tricks, and etc… . Smackdowns presentations are often used during Ed Tech Camps. It is a way to share a variety of ideas to support the integration of educational technology in a short time period. Smackdowns can be used during a faculty meeting, team meeting, conference day and etc… to support colleagues with moving forward as everyone learns the best practices for integrating educational technology. Twitter is now in my top ten list as an Ed Tech Resource.
