Last week I attended a tweet chat hosted by the #LDinsight team (L&D Connect) to support an INSPIRE session being run at Learning Live.
This is a weekly online chat hosted by fellow L&D professionals focusing on key topics in L&D and runs at 8-9am every Friday.
For those people who have never attended a Tweet Chat or aren't on Twitter this probably sounds like a very strange thing but it's a great example of using Social Media to connect and learn from others.
So what happens?
People from around the world communicate via Twitter using 140 characters and a # (hashtag) in this case #LDinsight and answer questions that the host posts.
There are different formats such as asking a different question every 10 minutes or just chatting around a topic generally for an hour. Either way they are open to anyone who wants to join in and anyone can search the #hashtag and see what has been discussed.
They are great to help you build up your network and connect with those in your field.
Once the chat has finished you can curate and save any tweets and post them in a Storify for example and then share with the world, or in this case the DPG Community :-)
I've embedded the Storify from last weeks chat below and I'd love to know from you the same question.
How are you using Social Media for interactive learning?
