Tweet Chat–UPDATE!

After our discussion in class today about the Tweet Chat, I thought I would put out a new post with the newly decided upon arrangements.  As always, please feel free to comment and change things if needed 🙂

Oh and again, a big thanks to Anna Kim for suggesting this documentary!

Date/Time: Sunday, February 13, 2011 @ 8:00pm

Chapters to watch:

1.  Chapter 4:  Teaching with Technology

2.  Chapter 5:  The Dumbest Generation

3.  Chapter 9:  Where are We Headed?

Hashtag–NEW:  #PBSDigNat. (I figured since we wont be looking specifically at kids, a more general hashtag would be better).  Make sure to include this hashtag in all of your tweets pertaining to this topic.

This will be about 27 minutes of video.  I will “monitor” the chat–basically at 7:55ish or so, everyone should send out a tweet saying that they are “logged on” and that they are ready to watch Chapter 4.  At 7:00. we can all press play and tweet away!  When that first chapter is done, I’ll probably wait a minute or so, then send out a tweet saying to start Chapter 5.  So on and so on.

Some people prefer to watch the video clips first and then tweet and some people like to tweet while they are watching.  It really doesn’t matter–just do what you are most comfortable with.  Also, something might hit you 2 hours or 2 days after watching the documentary–that’s cool too, just use the #PBSDigNat hashtag to continue the conversation.

Ask questions if you have any!
