What is a #TeachTweet you ask? It's a series of video experiences on a topic - with reflections related to what you saw, heard or learned discussed through social media (in this case Twitter). A common experience can generate a discourse community (see my last post) and the 5 videos we viewed together definitely generated some discourse! The video format allowed us all to walk the halls of schools incorporating Bring Your Own Technology/Device... hearing from actual, real life students, faculty, administrators. We then used Twitter to discuss, share, reflect and build on our common experience.
To see the whole chat - check out the #BYOTchat webpage. Posts linking to videos are in red - helps to point out those Tweets in the midst of all the conversation! Since this is my personal blog, I will shamelessly promote my less that professional video "Faculty Introduce Bring Your Own Tech at Brebeuf Jesuit" (yes, a long way before I get nominated for a Webby... but a gal has to start somewhere).
