Twitter is more than just celebrity rants and 140-character trivialities. Twitter chats are fast-paced, real-time conversations with educators around the globe on topics that matter. Learn how to find a chat that interests you, and then jump in to exchange ideas. The workshop will begin with a basic introduction to Twitter, engage participants collectively in a live Twitter chat, and culminate with independent time for you to find communities of interest, browse archives and upcoming chats, and start tweeting.
