This page provides a record of our ground-up efforts.
In the first three months of 2015, five #edsg members will participate in a Twitter experiment.
Update: We are extending the experiment for three more months.
Each of us will share resources on an educational topic on a particular week day:
These are not separate chats from our fortnightly ones on Sundays, 9-10pm, SGT. However, chats might result from the sharing of the resources that seed discussion.
Why do this at all?
#edsg hit the three year-old mark in February 2015. Over that time, we have seen our online community grow, change, and experiment.
We have done weekly synchronous chats on voted topics, organic weekly chats, rotation curation, and general PLN support. We thought it was time to create greater ownership of subtopics, and draw lurkers and newbies to participate in a meaningful manner.
If we succeed, we breathe new life into #edsg. If we fail, we learn from the process.
