New to Chat?

Congratulations on taking a new step in being connected! To join a Twitter chat, you just need to know what hashtag is being used. A hashtag is simply a way to search topics on Twitter and is recognized as a word preceded by a “#.” We use #INeLearn. Once you’ve logged into Twitter, you can use the search box to find us.

Some chats are fast paced and it's important to note that you aren't expected to read everything. Typically #INeLearn chats are in low-gear and our moderators help you find your place by structuring questions with a number system (Q1...). 

#INeLearn chat is a bit unique in that we don't answer with A1, etc rather we use R1 to respond to Q1. Here's why.  Not all answers will be labeled, but when a new question is posted, it's generally easy to spot. There are a number of tools such as Hootsuite and TweetDeck to help you keep track of the #INeLearn tweets as they are posted, but the critical thing to remember is that when you post a tweet, you need to include the #INeLearn hashtag so that others will see it.  

One tool we’ve found to be really useful is Twubs. This site not only shows you the stream (the list of all the tweets using the hashtag), but once you are logged in using your Twitter username, it will automatically add the hashtag to your tweets. We’ve included the link for you: http://twubs.com/INeLearn.

NEW: Participate Learning Chats works like Twubs with extra features. Join INeLearn via PARTICIPATE
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday evenings at 8CST/9EST. You'll find us by searching the hashtag #INeLearn. If you have any questions, you can send a tweet to @INeLearn or email mgreen@doe.in.gov

  1. TweetChat is also a useful #chat tool. The site helps to facilitate replies, RT (retweets), and Quoting to a tweet with the chat hashtag included into the character count. http://tweetchat.com
