A Local Twitter Chat-#LivEd

Let’s connect Livingston County educators through social media using Twitter!  It’s open to administrators, teachers, and other interested staff.  Example discussion topics may include technology integration, best practices, project-based learning, and other relevant education topics.
The first chat is scheduled for Wednesday, May 22nd at 9pm, and will continue every week at the same time.   Anyone interested can log on to a Twitter account and search for #lived (Livingston Educators) or send a message with #lived in the message.  We hope to spread the word about how educators use Twitter for inspiration and self-directed PD.  You may know of or participate in some other education based chats such as #edchat and #miched which are very popular across the country and state.  We hope to connect with and/or introduce our colleagues and neighbors to these groups, and add a chat with a regional focus.
After attending the MACUL this year, I realized how teachers around the country are connecting through social media for ongoing professional development.  We decided to bring this idea back to our area.  Tons of teachers and principals are connecting online, exploring, and inspiring new ideas.  Our goal for this initial chat is to have 20 educators from different districts in the county.  Will you join us?
