The past couple of days we have been discussing hashtags. Today we will be exploring a specific use of the hashtag for educators - edchat. Anyone can add hashtags to tweets at any time throughout the day but there are also specific times at which certain hashtags have predetermined topics and a live conversation can take place on Twitter among anyone using a specific hashtag.

Today's Task:

Today's task is to watch the following video demonstrating how to participate in an edchat. The video is 9 minutes long and does a good job of describing how an individual can both follow and actively participate in an edchat.


Congratulations on completing Day 23 of the challenge. Tomorrow we will look specifically for educational hashtags and edchats which match your content area and/or grade level.
