After I discovered Twitter I discovered twitter chats, firstly watching, then taking part ,then hosting a couple of established chats; #SLTchat, #UKedchat and #BETTchat.

To take part in a chat you just search for the # at a given time i.e 8.30 am for #IncludEDau.

You will see tweets with Q1, Q2 etc you just respond by sending a tweet with A1, A2 etc at the start.

Some examples from #SpEdSC below, being a slow chat it doesn’t always have question numbers.

I thought it would be good to try and run one of my own but running a regular chat is a time consuming business. I did hijack the dormant #specialedchat hashtag one week, with a great response.

Much as I love hosting a chat I couldn’t commit to a regular slot so I thought I would try a slow chat. For those of you who don’t know, a slow chat is a chat that takes place with 1 or more questions posted over a week. For #SpEdSC I usually post a question on Saturday. If its not getting too much interest I post a new question midweek. People then reply whenever they feel like it.

We get a great response for quite a new chat. Most contributors work in the field of SEN but inclusion and SEN affect all educators. Join In, you can even suggest questions (please do) by clicking here!  We have had a steady stream of interactions and would love for you to join us, Just click the image below to have a look at the most recent tweets.
