#ELT chat: how to participate

#ELT chat: how to participate | TELT | Scoop.it

What is #ELTChat?
#ELTchat started in September 2010 when a group of #ELTchat professionals began to use twitter to discuss topics of interest to English Language Teachers. It began with the aim of creating a freely available social network for ELT professionals offering mutual support and opportunities for Continuous Professional Development.


Now, every Wednesday at 12pm and 21.00pm, ELT teachers from all over the world log into their Twitter account and for one hour hold an online discussion on a topic they have selected.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Good place to start to develop your own personal learning network for English language teaching.

How to do Chirpstory: Jo Brodie

How to do Chirpstory: Jo Brodie | TELT | Scoop.it

 I use Chirpstory to collect hundreds of tweets relatively quickly. [I]t lets you collect tweets in pages rather than individually. Here's how I do it.

Shona Whyte's insight:

I just started using this in the usual way and for the usual reasons - spotted someone using it (#eltchat), then saw how it would be helpful for something I'm already doing (PLNs for pre-service teachers).  Luckily someone has posted this nice walk-through.

World Teacher: Mentor teachers - an #eltchat summary

World Teacher: Mentor teachers - an #eltchat summary | TELT | Scoop.it

Summary of conversation on Twitter among #ELTchat participants on the topic of mentoring.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Much of the discussion would be relevant to non-language teaching contexts.  Interesting for my work with pre-service EFL teachers at a French university.  #eltchat is probably a good place for them to begin developing a PLN.
