Looking for other teachers/schools who are using Twitter and/or Skype. I am putting together a TUESDAY lunch club for my 3rd, 4th, 5th grade teachers, 12:20 - 1pm PST (Pacific Standard Time). In the spirit of Twitter's popular #teachertuesday , we will be looking to build a PLN of teachers using web 2.0 technologies. Our goals are to build viable world-wide PLNs (Personal Learning Networks) and connect teachers with other teachers on Twitter. I think some great classroom projects will grow out of this lunch club! Our fall Skype sessions will focus on, 1. how you use Skype at your school and projects you have done or want to do, and 2. how you use Twitter at your school and who you follow on Twitter as part of your PLN.
If you are interested in these ideas, please post to this discussion.
Also, if you are on Twitter, please follow me @marinmacteacher for updates on our Twitter #teachertuesday lunch club.
I'm a high school teacher, but would love to talk about how I use Twitter. I haven't used Skype before, but have been wanting to start using it. I don't know my schedule yet, but should be available either the first 15 minutes or that last 15 minutes of your scheduled time.
