Classroom 2.0 LIVE! - Saturday Shows

What do hashtags and Twitter have in common? TwitterChats, of course! If you're still trying to figure out exactly what hashtags are, what TwitterChats are, and how to make these a part of your professional learning network, join our amazing special guest, Alice Keeler, to get the scoop in this week's Classroom 2.0 LIVE show (Saturday, October 18th): TwitterChats: What, Why, How, When? Alice is a doctoral student at Boise State University in EdTech with a focus on gamification and has many years of experience as an ed tech leader and connected educator. Alice is a Google Certified Teacher, New Media Consortium K12 Ambassador, Microsoft Innovative Educator and LEC Admin & Online and Blended certified. She has led project teams for Google projects such as the YouTube teachers project and the Google Play for Education project. She has served on the New Media Consortium Horizon report advisory panel for both 2013 and 2014. As a believer in the importance of connectivity she founded #coffeeEDU and #profchat and is a perfect person to help us learn about the power of TwitterChats. If you participate in educational TwitterChats we hope you'll join us to share your personal favorites and your experiences as a participant.
