Check out their (who is, hands down one of the best in this area) one of their recent conversations centered around what do general education teachers need to know about teaching students with special needs. So #NTChat provides a support network to these teachers. Break the ice with pick up lines that teachers can relate to and find funny.One of the easiest way to get on board is to join chats on twitter. Sometimes it is hard for me to believe how successful it has been.Educators "meet" weekly to discuss the latest issues in their field. While there are those that believe it is a waste of time, more and more educators are taking time on Tuesday nights (and some on Tuesday afternoons) to participate.
They also created another hashtag, #scido that aims to get the conversation out of the virtual space and get people to doing. Many times these teachers go without anyone to help them in their first years.Meeting on Tuesday evenings, 9pm EST these teachers discuss pressing issues in science and teaching science.One of the most interesting discussions I have seen was one on the merits of the scientific method and how to teach inquiry in science.But what is awesome about social media and Twitter is that you can use it for whatever purpose you see fit.
That is why other groups of people have taken it upon themselves to create their own chats for special interests. So what I wanted to do is highlight a few of my favorites. Lurking as we call it, to get a feel for what people talk about and to stretch my own thinking.
Use these teacher and education related pick up lines for the different subjects to help you pick up that hot teacher.
