This is a good video to watch to help get started with TweetDeck. Ms. Hurley gives great direction and helpful hints to get you going.
I’m looking forward to the chats I’m following this week. Of course, that’s if I remember to open my laptop. The last two weeks, I either forgot about them, or Life got in the way and I couldn’t join the chats. I’m hoping that with TweetDeck as a permanent tab on Chrome, I’ll have a constant reminder. Thank God for archives! I’ll keep you posted on what I find out this week from my three planned chats (#mdedchat, #symchat, #spedchat).
Edit: I participated in my first Twitter Chats last night, and they were very interesting. The #spedchat was geared more toward older students in the voc/career path. As an elementary teacher, I didn’t have too much to add to the discussion. However, on #mdedchat, we had a great deal to discuss about teaching the whole child. I walked away with added tools, and the knowledge that I’m not alone in what I see with my students.
