Twitter Transcript: #wvedchat on Educators and Blogging

I promise that more updates are coming soon on my reading of Teach Like a Pirate, as well an an update on my #vaedtech journey. However, tonight’s #wvedchat is special to me because it was my first time hosting/moderating one! One of the leaders of #wvedchat, Derek, sent out a notice that there wasn’t a topic for this week’s chat yesterday. He would gladly take over if no one volunteered. On a whim, I decided to set up some ideas on educators and blogging. I want to see more educators using a blog as their way of reflecting and growing, and this was my chance.

I prepped my 5 questions, and I even did some images with text on them to add throughout the hour. Eventually I changed one of my questions and added a 6th one. I was definitely worried that not as many people would be interested in the topic, but we had a pretty good turnout in the end. I did my very best to keep up and reply to as many people as possible. I didn’t want anyone feeling left out or unnoticed. There were so many good points made tonight, and I’m very proud of the WV educators that added their voices to the conversation.
