Welcome to the #edchatIE wiki.


This is a space that was built to house the transcripts of the weekly online chats (every Monday night 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. Check out the sidebar on the right for the latest #edchatIE Tweets and links to other pages on this wiki too.


#edchatIE Special (04/02/2013): Cyberbullying


As part of Safer Internet Day 2013 #sid13, the Monday night chat to be held on the 4th February, will be all about the topic of "Cyberbullying". We would love to see you take part. The chat runs from 8.30-9.30pm (Irish time). While you're waiting until then, check out the hashtags #edchatie on Twitter as well as #sid13



Video: Using Technology in Schools


Take a look at this video, made by the educators who contribute to the #edchatIE discussion to learn about students and teachers in Irish schools using technology. Many thanks to all the teachers and schools involved, including the originator of this video @catherinecronin and @glynnmark for his editing skills.


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 #edchatIE operates:

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 are tagged in Tweets using the #edchatIE hashtag. Follow it to get involved! 


How the Monday night #edchatIE runs:

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.



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