Synchronous Class #2

Class #2  1 hour+  Met in Twitter Chat  #newspaces4learning

This class met online in Twitter Chat whre we shared about Symbaloo, Diggo, Ning, Twitter. Then Cary posted some reflective questions on our Readings from Intro, Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 from Will and Rob’s book.

I know that I have move all my tools forward–not just lurking on Twitter but tweeting and retweeting with purpose!  🙂 I have most of my symbaloo set up and use it as my homepage on every computer I come into contact with.  Using Diggo and Ning.

Now about the Twitter Chat–I do not like using this for a “class chat”–it gets sometimes hard to follow if you pause for any reason you get lost in the coversation.  I had used Twitter chat along with a webinar on “Instagram in the Classroom.” +1 Hour Here we were on Blackboard Collaborate so you could see speaker, his screen and he ran the Tweet Chat as backchanneling–which I thought was a great way to use Twitter Chat.

Mike, my principal, did make the comment that there “was probably more collaboration across schools in that one hour than the whole school year!”  Yes!  That is why it should happen. 🙂
