Moderators are our guides through each #GeoEdChat. It’s their job to inspire us, keep us on topic and to blog a summary of the chat. Scroll down the page if you are interested in moderating a future chat, we’d love to hear from you.
Future & Past Moderators
February 6th – To be moderated by David Rogers. Vote on the topic here.
Be a future Moderator
#GeoEdChat depends on volunteer moderators to guide the conversation we have each week. Being a moderator does take a little time, but it will be very rewarding. You’ll be supported every step of the way by one of the #GeoEdChat Editors. The process of being a moderator looks like this:
- Think of 3-5 (un)related topics that you would like to moderate. These can by absolutely anything you want that are to do with geography education. These will be polled on this site.
- Write short ‘Think Piece’ on this blog. The purpose of the post is to give GeoEd Chatters something to think about before the chat starts and to bounce thinking off and around. It could be anything from a thought experiment or an exam paper to a video or poem. It needs to be ready the week before your #GeoEdChat.
- Moderate the chat. Help to make sure that the #GeoEdChat stays on topic and steer it in a way that best helps to tackle the key issues, themes or ideas. At the end of the chat you’ll need to invite chatters to vote on what the next #GeoEdChat for your region will be the following month.
- After the #GeoEdChat is over there will be lots of ideas, links, quotes and other things that we’d all like to keep in a summary for future use. Please make a short summary as soon as you can after your chat.
If you’d like to moderate a future #GeoEdChat please complete this short form. We’ll get back to you when we can.
