Over fish & chips and ciders on Wednesday, March 16th at #PubPD in Toronto, my Digital Lead Learner pal Arianna and I came up with the idea of #tdsbEd, a new Twitter chat for TDSB Educators! We want a place where TDSB Educators can share, connect and learn from each other. After all, as teachers our best resource is always one another!
It was pretty simple how it all came to be, the conversation went something like this,
“Hey, why doesn’t TDSB have a Twitter chat? We are the biggest school board in Canada. Other school boards are doing it!”
“Let’s start it!”
After that conversation we hashed out a hashtag with the wonderful Ed Techie people around the table and decided it had to be something short enough, that hasn’t been used in the past and was easy to remember. #tdsbEd was born!
Since then we’ve been working on promo flyers for Twitter and launching a website related to our new Twitter chat, you can find the Google Site at bit.ly/tdsbed.
**UPDATE** Our site now has a new look, come check it out!
