Global tweeting #chat -post chat update

Fancy participating in a global twitter event? Keen to use twitter for CPD? Gather ideas from across the globe? (USA, UK, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Australia and…,).

Today Saturday 16 June at midday GMT London the expanding #geogsolo group will be discussing their use of #SOLO taxonomy to visibly demonstrate progress in their pupils learning. A New Zealand sourced idea that is spreading through Twitter. Geography already has a number of strong global links between teachers, this is our first attorney at a global link up.
So please join in, follow #geogsolo and see where this idea is going. All feedback welcomed. @JOHNSAYERS has set up a google docs area where resources, links and feedback can be shared.

Was it a success?
Judge for yourself – 5 countries involved on the day – USA, UK, Abu Dhabi, Australia and New Zealand. We also were observed and joined by SLT representatives, scientists, primary practitioners. Much to our surprise we apparently trended onTwitter in the UK and Victoria State, Australia.
@JOHNSAYERS will be compiling the archive for the session. here are many ideas and links about Solo in general, in geography, for marking, levelling, grading, extending to top levels/ grades.

Well I think I speak for all those involved- it was a fantastic success beyond most (if not all) of our aspirations for a first chat – now to develop, draw more teachers in and extend our practice and collaboration.
