Learning in the cloud (TweetChat)
edCetra Training will begin hosting a monthly TweetChat about learning in the cloud on Wednesday, September 7th at 12pm EST, using the hashtag #clouduc8 (pronounced “cloud-ucate”).
Topics of the #clouduc8 TweetChat will include cloud-based tools and technologies, evolution of learning in the cloud, content curation, semantic languages for describing learning, design and development of Web-based learning, using XML, etc. The overall focus is on learning about new technologies and applying them to new models of learning and learners.
What’s a TweetChat?
A TweetChat is a focused conversation on Twitter, generally lasting about an hour but sometimes longer. You will need a Twitter account to participate, and you need to know the hashtag for the TweetChat (in this case, it’s #clouduc8). Use a Twitter client, such as Tweetdeck, or an online site, such as Tweetchat.com, that will continuously update the conversation as it proceeds. Respond to other participants by entering your comments as a tweet. If you are taking part manually, make sure to include the hashtag at the end of each comment (TweetChat does this automatically for you). If you want to respond to a specific person, use their Twitter handle (for example, @edcetra) in the tweet.
TweetChats are a rapid stream of comments, and can be a little bewildering at first, but jump in and take part, and you’ll be a pro in no time!
