#lrnchat is just one example of the hundreds of Twitter Chats that happen weekly. These chats
are free open forums that anyone can join in and more so learn from the other participants.
Topics are wide ranging, but #lrnchat is specific to those interested in the topic of learning from
one another and who want to discuss how to help other people learn in formal, informal, social
and mobile ways. (Presented at eACH 2013)
