This Week (week 2), David offered us the challenge to expand our PLN and PKM by entering the ‘Twitterverse’ and engaging with other educators on #edchat.
I have found that Australian Teachers and Educators are sharing resources and information through a series of chats. I personally find the #PSTchat to be helpful along with the #ozprimschchat. I have previously found the contributors to these chats to be extremely helpful and genuine in offering information.
There is debate surrounding the topic of whether or not participating in these chats can be linked to the professional development and engagement requirements of the AITSL Standards. My personal view is that you would have to demonstrate that you are at least meeting the minimum requirements of the relevant AITSL Standard.
