Twitter Chats with MSLA

MSLA has been holding monthly Twitter Chats for over a year — not counting a brief hiatus over the summer.  These are typically held on the second Tuesday of the month from 8 – 9 PM.  There is a topic for discussion posted in advance and the chats are moderated by Amy Short, Director of Library and Media Service for the Boston Public Schools.  Recent topics include Read Across America (December), Collaboration (November) and Reading Culture (October).  These Twitter Chats offer a great opportunity to exchange ideas with colleagues without having to travel to a meeting.  And if you can’t make the Twitter Chat, you can still access all the great ideas through the Storify links provided by Amy Short shortly thereafter.  The next Twitter Chat will focus on moving towards the Learning Commons model on January 13th, 8PM.  Use #MSLA to join the chat that evening, or look for a link to the Twitter Chat Storify on the MSLA list serve.  To explore the Twitter Chats from this fall, follow the links below:
