Twitter chats are a great resource for educators. If you are unfamiliar with the idea of Twitter chats, they are regular conversations on Twitter between different users on a particular topic. There are many different education chats that occur on a weekly or monthly basis. As a librarian, two of my favorite chats are #tlchat (Teacher Librarian Chat) and #titletalk. You can find many resources as well as a schedule of educational Twitter chats on Cybraryman’s Educational Chats on Twitter page.
Google Docs now offers a Twitter Curator Google Add-On. This would be a great tool to use to search for resources to share from a Twitter Chat or from a conference hashtag. You can save resources for later, but I think an excellent application would be to use Twitter Curator to share the power of the Twitter professional development community with educators who are not ready to take the plunge and join Twitter itself.
Watch the video below to see how Twitter Curator works. I used #nerdcampmi as my sample search.
