About #lrnchat

#lrnchat is a place for people interested in the topic of learning who use the social messaging service Twitter to learn from one another and discuss how to help other people learn.

The online chat happens every Thursday night 8:30-9:30pm EST / 5:30-6:30pm PST.

The “#” sign, known as a hashtag enables you to search for #lrnchat and participate during the discussion held once a week on Thursday nights. You can also use live-chat services such as TweetChat and TweetGrid or even seek out #lrnchat in Twitter search.

Learn who participates and submit a question for the next chat.

#lrnchat is hosted by @LnDDave, @brtiz, @tracy_parish, @kelly_smith01, @ryantracey, and @janebozarth. The official twitter account is @lrnchat.

By way of background, #lrnchat began on April 10, 2009 before we  knew how to gather transcripts. Clark Quinn announced it on his blog.  Here’s why we thought a twitter chat for learning was a good idea.
