#literacies chat

Join us on Twitter Thursdays 7:00-8:00 PM EST using the hashtag #literacies!

The #literacies chat is a weekly chat on Twitter bringing together educators, researchers and thinkers fascinated by contemporary literacies.

Already we have discussed:

  • Our priorities and commitments when it comes to contemporary literacies. (Topic here. Summarized here.)
  • Ideas that frame our thinking about “literacies.” (Topic here. Archived here.)
  • The deceptively simple definition of “text.” (Topic here. Archived here.)
  • Swapping syllabi–a chat that extended across two productive weeks of exchange. (Topic here. Archived here.)
  • The role time plays in contemporary literacies. (Topic here. Archived here.)

See http://literacieschat.wordpress.com/ for upcoming chat topics and archives of the old ones!

I’ve blogged about it here The #literacies Chat is Born! and here #literacies chat: The Reboot.

Here is our original discussion topic list including an awesome list of contributors:
