hahaha! Wokka -- Sam Patterson's puppet!!

05:28 - @wfryer
Our son is still an egg on Twitter, maybe Sam can help me with that

05:29 - Peggy George (Craig Yen: Taking the Plunge-July 19, 2013)

05:50 - Kim T. AZ
It does take some "nudging" for some of us! Peggy is my official "nudger". :)

05:55 - Peggy George
it's amazing how much Twitter has changed our lives over such a short time!

05:57 - Peggy George

06:15 - Peggy George (Craig Yen’ blog)

06:41 - Peggy George
the biggest challenge is creating messages with only 140 characters :-) (for me)!!

06:55 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise 2
I joined Twitter in 2011. Made me a better educator by 1000 percent!

07:14 - Peggy George
I love #ar4learning chat :-)

07:26 - Patti Ruffing
I often lurk at Paula's group #4thchat on Monday night

07:50 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise 2
I am hosting #txeduchat Sunday at 8 cst

08:48 - Peggy George

08:59 - Peggy George (Cybraryman1-Jerry Blumengarten: Educational Hashtags)

09:13 - Susie @shighley
I'm moderating the #Read4Fun chat tomorrow (Sunday)

09:20 - Peggy George
Cybraryman has so many terrific pages of resources for educators!

09:31 - Kim T. AZ
Cybraryman is every where!

09:35 - Peggy George (Cybraryman1-Jerry Blumengarten: Resources for hashtags and Twitter chats)

09:44 - Susie @shighley
Good reminder that I should go back and check it more often

09:51 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise 2
I use #makerspace quite a bit.

10:00 - Peggy George (Cybraryman1-Jerry Blumengarten: Makerspaces resources)

10:34 - Peggy George
his site is really easy to search for any topic you might be interested in!

11:01 - Peggy George
that's an awesome way to find people to follow!

11:35 - Peggy George
that page has so much content you have to keep scrolling!!

11:53 - Peggy George (Tweetdeck: Twitter tool for real-time tracking, organizing, and engagement of Twitter connections and hashtags. )

12:01 - Kim T. AZ
Just started using this over the last year....sure does make things easier.

12:12 - Peggy George
I love TweetDeck! I use it on my desktop but you can also just use it in your browser.

12:25 - Peggy George (Getting Started with Tweetdeck)

12:47 - Susie @shighley
I was intimidated at first, but concentrating on three or so at a time is doable. Changing the column for whatever chat is current really helps

12:52 - Peggy George
I have a LOT of columns in my Tweetdeck. Love that you can re-order them so you see the most important first.

13:23 - Kim T. AZ
@shighley - I agree completely! 3 columns is my limit.

13:23 - Peggy George
show us that with screen sharing Craig :-)

13:42 - Peggy George (Fieldguide: Tweetdeck Tips and Tricks to Master All Things Twitter)

13:54 - Peggy George
that field guide is terrific for Tweetdeck

14:07 - Peggy George
Hi Holly and Terry! Welcome!

14:25 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise 2
I manage 3twitter accounts so Tweetdeck is really helpful for staying organized!

14:51 - Peggy George
there it is Craig! :-)

15:14 - Peggy George
lots of ways to personalize Tweetdeck!

15:34 - Kim T. AZ
Just opened up my 4th column on TweetDeck....pushing the limits:o

15:41 - Suzana Lazarevic Petrovic

15:51 - Peggy George
it's so easy to miss things flying by on Twitter and this makes sure you don't miss important things :-)

16:18 - Peggy George
Hey! I saw Kim's tweet :-)

16:36 - Peggy George
Hi Barbara! So great to have you joining us!!!

16:39 - Susie @shighley
I didn't know about adding the like column! Too often those get lost in the abyss of cyberspace

16:41 - Barbara Cotter
Sorry I'm late

16:46 - Barbara Cotter
Hi Peggy

16:47 - Susie @shighley
Hi, Barbara!

Twitter is the PLN of wormholes, particularly for educators

18:45 - Peggy George
hahaha Barbara!!!! what's a wormhole :-)

18:54 - Peggy George (Follow Craig Yen on Twitter)

19:06 - Kim T. AZ
I feel like I am channeling Peggy George....2 devices going with this show and Tweetdeck open. Will probably have a headache when this is all over. :)

19:16 - Peggy George
that's a really important tip about direct messages! you must follow each other!

19:33 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise 2
Nice tool for note-taking!

Early like 8:00 am cst

20:08 - Peggy George
that's a great hashtag to follow and it's not just for new teachers :-)

21:08 - Peggy George (Example of Twitter lists by Adam Taylor @2footgiraffe)

21:42 - Peggy George
click on it right now and click on follow :-)

21:51 - Peggy George
his lists are amazing!

22:00 - Peggy George
Craig tell us how you create a twitter list

22:27 - Susie @shighley
I made a list of people in my district in twitter (back when there weren't nearly as many as now) Helped see what was going on in the district.

22:38 - Barbara Cotter
Certainly don't just "follow" great individuals, but make a "connection" via collaboration and feedback

22:56 - Susie @shighley
Now many use a district hashtag so I don't use it as much

23:20 - Peggy George
you have to be careful about using too many hashtags in your tweet or there's no room for your message :-)

24:01 - Peggy George

24:30 - Peggy George
that's really easy on Tweetdeck :-)

24:45 - Peggy George
I rarely go online in my browser for Twitter

24:52 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
on twitter go to to make lists

25:01 - Peggy George
thanks Sheri!

25:09 - Peggy George
hooray! I made the list :-)

25:38 - Susie @shighley
I hadn't done that in TweetDeck, either

25:43 - Peggy George
I have a list for my favorite people just to make sure I don't miss their Tweets :-)

25:50 - Susie @shighley
YEs, lots of lists in twitter

25:52 - Russel
This is very useful

25:53 - Russel

26:01 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
you can subscribe to lists

26:04 - Susie @shighley
But I hadn't thought about looking at them in TweetDeck

26:43 - Kim T. AZ
Love, love, love podcasts!

26:47 - Peggy George
Podcasts are awesome because you can listen anywhere/anytime

27:04 - Peggy George (Jeff Bradbury: TechEducator podcast)

27:12 - Peggy George (Jon Harper: My Bad podcast)

27:26 - Susie @shighley
Podcasts help make mundane tasks much easier, like dishes, laundry... in addition to listening in the car

27:39 - Peggy George
I love Jon Harper's My Bad podcasts because it's educators talking about their mistakes and how they have learned from them :-)

27:40 - Kim T. AZ
EdCamps are one of the most incredible ways to learn, share and meet people!

27:46 - Peggy George (Bedley Brothers podcast)

27:52 - Peggy George (EdCamp wikispace)

28:09 - Susie @shighley
edcamps have been where I"ve met many people F2F for the first time after knowing them on twitter

28:20 - Peggy George
I love EdCamps and there are some online EdCamps too!

28:47 - Peggy George

39:37 - Peggy George
Would anyone like to take the mic to share your experiences?

40:58 - Barbara Cotter #2
Many of these connections aren't just via twitter, but also via the Google community likewise

40:59 - Kim T. AZ
thanks...going to give it a try!

41:35 - Peggy George (Top 100 education blogs for educators and teachers-updated Oct. 21, 2016)

41:57 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise 2
In my experience, Parents tend to use Facebook and Instagram more than twitter.

42:27 - Barbara Cotter #2
Love that connections extended to all via Edmodo, Voxer, Google plus, to name a few. Parents have a plethora of options

42:35 - Peggy George
Craig please share about connecting with parents via social media

42:43 - Peggy George
do you recommend Remind?

42:57 - Peggy George
Susie do you use Remind?

43:01 - Peggy George
Can you share?

43:13 - Barbara Cotter #2
Particularly if the school has an active twitter account or is Google school

43:36 - Peggy George
Remind is not as wide open as Twitter or Facebook for their important reminders from the school and teacher

43:47 - Barbara Cotter #2
We use Remind @peggy

43:54 - @mrsmorgansclass Louise 2
We have been using Slack at my school too.
