Wanted: psychology tweeps to join #psychat
If you are on Twitter, join #psychat next Wednesday night at 8pm (ET) for a live hour of free professional development! Last night @mrpotter hosted and the discussion centered on how high school psychology teachers are using social media. It was the first #psychat so the crowd was a little small, but that actually gave all of the participants plenty of time to ask and answer questions from each other. Last night folks chatted about using Twitter and Facebook, as well as new media like Diipo and the differences between Edmodo and Schoology, among other topics.
How do you participate? If you are using Twitter and you want to join, just be sure to use the hashtag #psychat at the end of each tweet. If you're not a Twitter user but still want to follow the conversation, you can go to Twitter.com and type #psychat into the search box (or just click here). It's really a great way to share information with each other in an informal manner - a psych-based virtual Personal Learning Community where your voice is heard!
And if you participated in #psychat or just use Twitter in general, please chime in about your experience!
