Over the course of the last year, twitter chats of all sorts have been popping up. A regular chat devoted to the middle level has been slow to get off the ground. There is a hashtag (#midleved) and some regular contributors, but nothing close to a live chat. That is something that a few middle school educators are trying to change. Despite being listed on Cybraryman's website as a Tuesday chat (#midleved), it has also occurred as an all-day Friday chat in the past. We are seeking input on a regular date & time as well as a topic for the initial chat. Once the first topic is set, weekly polls will be listed to determine the current week's topic. We have contacted Troy & Shawn from the Middle School Matters podcast about including a summary of the chat in their weekly series. Tying together the #midleved chat, Middle School Matters, and the Middle School Portal 2 sites would provide for a stronger community to share resources, collaborate, and disseminate information.
