Update Twitter Chats: WHAT To DO BETTER!?
WE were already discussing about Twitter-Chats to use for <===> Professional Development, called ALSO “Teacher Training” (in Luxembourg/Europe) in my following blog posts:
It’s time to reflect on the way HOW they get used; are THEY used correctly OR are they ONLY reflecting the use of Technology WITH OLD EDUcation Mentality!?
Well, I must say (sadly…) that Twitter-Chats are mostly used with THE OLD EDUcation Mentality! Thus meaning: there isn’t any reflection about the published posts, NO analyzing about WHAT was understood and WHAT NOT!!! And that is a shame which needs to get done BETTER!
It’s a feeling like being back again in time WHERE a lesson was taught and nothing later happend, excuse-me please: that is NOT #ModernEDU!!!
WHAT needs to get changed for BETTER!?
Well, I don’t go too far into NEW Pedagogy and an Up-To-Date Professional Development (will provide links for further reading below…) and just tell YOU WHAT SHOULD be done different; let us take ALSO a look on the picture below, my advice:
- Once a month make a break with Twitter-Chats and provide a blog post with reflecting on the weeks before; analyze the posts and give tips, advice for doing, learning BETTER…
- Make it a Twitter-Chat by including the blog post and use it as a Twitter-Chat to get feedback on the analyzing…
- Update YOUR blog post with the feedback given…
- Create ALSO in this blog post the best links, resources provided by the tweeps (participants in the Twitter-Chats)…
- Show the archives from that month on YOUR reflecting blog post…
- Create an “End of The Year” blog post after 12 month, reflecting the whole year of Twitter-Chats…
- Create a keyword list in these blog posts about the Topics…
- Create a list of the tweeps: Twitter username with link to the tweeps, so that the readers can connect directly with the participants… YOU may use Twitter-lists to do so…
By doing the above YOU will know MORE about on the How-To the Twitter-Chats were understood, WHAT did the learners, students learn, WHAT are THEY asking for HELP <===> WHO is YOUR audience…
Check ALSO “Updated Twitter knowledge” with less abbreviations and international sensitivity about certain abbreviations…
