As I was reading through my Twitter feed the other day, I was marveling at the #Kinderchat and #NerdyBookClub posts from each of their blogs. How incredible to have a place where "members" can all share their thoughts, ideas, and passion in a longer format! And then I started wondering why #1stchat couldn't do the same thing, so I immediately emailed my wonderful co-host Val... and our blog was born.
We can make this our own, in any way we'd like. My original idea was to have guest posts, similar to how other group blogs do it. However, I am open to any and all ideas from our amazing PLN! As people begin using our blog, I'm sure we will come up with new ways and new ideas to add to it. We will still keep our wiki up and running, as that is a great place for people to contribute and find our archives.
If you are interested in contributing posts to our blog, please fill out this form (which is also linked at the top of our blog.) You'll be contacted via Twitter or email with more specifics on how to submit your finished piece(s.)
Yay!! I'm super excited to get this new ball rolling! I hope you'll join in the fun of stretching our thinking, improving our teaching craft, and connecting with other professionals in the name of learning.
