Let’s chat with the world #EdChat

The term #edchat is a term I have shy-ed away from for the simple fact I am intimidated by the idea of a fast moving thread of educators taking about education.  I feel like I live in an awkward space of not being a student and not being a teacher and am not sure I am ready to be participating in a chat with so many great educators!

This being said I jumped right into the idea of ed chats, cruising through the list of possible chats, I chose several chats  I felt were a good fit for me to be apart of.  I was disappointed when I realized I could not take part in #saskedchat due because I was in night class, but was excited at the possibility to be apart of several other chats.

I decided to participate in the #kinderchat that took place on Monday night at 8pm.  Before the chat started, I trolled though previous chats looking to see what others had written and what kinds of questions had been asked in the past.  I looked to see who the moderator was and waited until she begun tweeting.  People were very nice to me as the chat started, with more then one taking the time to welcome me to the chat and to make sure and ask if I had any questions.  The questions were interesting and thought provoking.

In the future I will be participating in more #edchats.  I love talking about education and  I love connecting with others via twitter.  Educators have so much to share and learn from one another I can’t wait to be apart of it!
