Welcome to the #edchatIE wiki.


This is a space that was built to house the transcripts of the weekly online chats (Monday nights 8.30 - 9.30pm) of Irish educators as they discuss all things education. I say educators because the weekly chats involve primary and post primary teachers and third level (college & university) lecturers too.


The #edchatIE discussions take place online, using Twitter as the medium.


Here's some information that might be of use to help you get the most from and also contribute to #edchatIE


First off, here's the general way all edchats and #edchatIE around the world tend to operate:


1. A poll is set up to look for input from all on topics for discussion.

2. Once that poll has closed the topics are set and then put up for a vote.

3. The topic that gets the most votes will become the topic for the edchat on the chosen night.


All of the above is tagged in Tweets using the #edchatIE hashtag. Follow it to get involved! 


Every Monday night #edchatIE happens:


1. From 8.30pm - 9.30pm #edchatIE opens with introductions from all and then the topic with the most votes is discussed.

2. Always include the hashtag #edchatIE in all of your tweets. They are all collated after the chat and compiled into a summary transcript of the discussion.


Here's some quick links to help you find out more:

If you have any questions, why not Tweet them using the hashtag #edchatIE for an answer.


In order to keep an eye on the #edchatIE discussions, it's a good idea to use a Twitter client, such as Tweetdeck (my personal favourite). You can open a separate column in Tweetdeck based on tweets that only use the #edchatIE hashtag.

Historically speaking, the #edchatIE poll closed at 8am on Wednesday 2nd March. We were polling Irish Educators, looking for the best day of the week & time of the day to hold the #edchatIE online and on Twitter. The short survey, closed and the results indicated Monday nights starting at 8.30pm - 9.30pm.
