We have evolved!

Hi all,

after our initial chats, we have had a short break to reflect on how we can improve #GeoEdChat and have come up with a few tweaks. This way we hope to engage more people with the ideas each week (and if you miss one you only have 1 week to wait!). The main change is a move from 1 hour only to a more informal day long affair.

How it will work:

  1. Blog – The guest moderator posts a “Think Piece” on this site
  2. Chat – #GeoEdChat on Twitter, at 8pm in your local timezone (starting down in NZ and continuing on for the next 24 hours), led by the guest moderator 
  3. Blog – The moderator posts a #GeoEdChat summary such as a storify or collation of the best ideas

So, we still want you to log on at 8pm your time but the rest of the world will do the same so that the conversation continues on for 24 hours and allows all people to engage with the theme of that week.

There will still be a think piece to provoke the conversation but now we will also ensure the chat is followed up with a blog/storify/reflection on what was covered in the chat.

Next chat will be next Wednesday May 15th and the Think Piece will be out very soon from Steve Mouldey (@GeoMouldey).
