My First Twitter Chat!

9 Feb

Just finished my first Twitter chat #edtechchat – Monday nights at 8:00 pm.. It is so cool to connect with people all over the globe who are passionate about the same things I am. I have been stalking this chat for awhile and was so nervous to jump in but I took the leap and found that everyone was so welcoming. This week’s topic was blended learning. Interesting to see what other people are doing with it.

So here are some awesome bloggers/ed tech enthusiasts that you should definitely check out if you are interested in all things ed tech.

* Jerry Blumengarten seems to have anything and everything you could ever possibly want to know about educational technology.

* Alice Keeler is my new idol. I am noticing that the educational technology field is dominated by men but Alice Keeler is a standout. She is my “go to” person for anything #GoogleClassroom and #GAFE. #Iwanttobelikealice!

* Rich Kiker, Google Trainer extraordinaire! I met him at a Google Boot Camp hosted by Evolving Educators. He knows all things Google and then some.
