What do the connected primary teachers do on Wednesdays from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m.? And those in high school, Thursday at the same time? They're chatting on Twitter!

Technopedagogical talks on Twitter have been around for some time, particularly in English. We can think of #edchat, #cdnedchat and other tags that are used to follow the thread of these virtual participatory meetings. With us, from 2010 to 2013, the #ClavEd served the same objectives, namely to invite educators to discuss themes of concern to the world of education.

Using Twitter allows us to gather a wide variety of points of view since the discussion brings together people from different regions, both public and private, pooling the reflections and the wealth of expertise acquired in different realities.

The tags (hashtags) used are:

  • #EduPrim for the primary talk, Wednesday at 9 p.m.
  • #EduSec for the high school talk, Thursday at 9 p.m.
  • #EduOrtho for remedial teachers, sometimes replaces the primary chat on Wednesdays;
  • #EduProf for talks aimed at all levels of education and which occasionally replace the secondary discussion on Thursdays.

But what exactly are we talking about?

The topics, which are not only related to technology, are suggested by the community itself. One or more people can volunteer to lead the discussions. Here are some examples of topics covered this year:

  • Homework and lessons
  • Writing in elementary school
  • Be a multiplier agent
  • Student motivation
  • How to properly assess in 2015?
  • Class organization
  • Stimulate creativity in students
  • etc.

According to the websites, Wednesday May 27th will be the last chat of the year for #EduPrim, and May 28 will be the last for #EduSec. However, it will be interesting to see these hashtags continue to live on throughout the summer to continue to fuel reflections.

We also hope that these great initiatives make a comeback in September!
