Today I finally participated in a Twitter chat!(Gif from giphy)
My last Twitter chat attempt was a bust, so I was excited to be successful in this one. While I only answered a few of the questions, I was able to participate and answer a few of the questions provided to participants. The chat that I joined was called #tlap ‘Teaching Like a Pirate’. While some of the questions were directly related to current teachers, I felt as though I was able to answer a lot of them even as a student. I loved hearing all of the positivity in the Twitter chat and I enjoyed reading some of the creative responses.
I started in the chat a little worried because I was struggling to find the question that was asked. My tweet deck was filling me with a bunch of “A.2” tweets, but I did not know the question in which I was replying to. I decided to wait and see if I could come across the next question instead. Lucky for me I did, and was able to answer question 3 and 4! I did not answer question 5 because I got a little nervous as it seemed aimed at current teachers so I took this time to read some responses and set up my first screencast! I decided to use screencast to capture my tweet deck experience and show how fast the tweets roll in. I was surprised to see that people jump in and answer any of the questions whenever they arrive. I avoided answering the first question because I was late to the party, but next time I participate in a twitter chat I will be less nervous and cautious.
