For those new to the concept, slow chats are just like normal edu chats except that they usually takes place from Monday through to Saturday - Usually only one question per day is asked during a slow chat and teachers can jump in whenever they want. - "Slow chats give you a chance to think, reflect and share." - Julie Szaj (@shyj)
How it works:
- On Monday 8th Feb the chat will start. Several times during the day the same question will be tweeted out – This will most likely be 12am, 7am and 7pm so as to reach a more global audience. There is no hurry to respond - take your time! When you are ready to respond just tweet out the question number followed by your answer e.g. A1. My answer is….. etc. Remember to end your reply with the hashtag: #dlchat
- There will only be one question per day, ending on Saturday (Six questions in total).
- On Sunday all the answers will collated in a @storify and shared with everyone who contributed in the #slowchat
