#EDENchat, the fortnightly tweet-chat run as part of the European Distance and E-learning Network (EDEN) and coordinated by friend of #LTHEchat Steve Wheeler (@stevewheeler AKA @timbuckteeth), usually takes place at the same time as #LTHEchat. But last night, prompted by this tweet by Simon Horrocks:

a rebel alliance was spontaneously formed and #LTHEchat tweet-jacked #EDENchat.

The #EDENchat was entitled Which learning technologies? and the topic was very complementary to what we usually discuss on #LTHEchat. There must have been an equal thirst for their Wednesday chat ‘fix’ because a number of #LTHEchat regulars joined us, and a splendid time was had by all.

In the end, the resulting discussion was of benefit to both communities:

Here’s the link to the Storify #EDENchat: Which personal technologies? You may also like to visit the #EDENchat archive.

#LTHEchat will officially return with a new team and a new topic on Wednesday 6th April at 8:00 pm BST (GMT+1). In the meantime, if you want to chat next week, we could open the channel for a free-for-all. Let us know, in the comments or on twitter using hashtag #LTHEchat if you want to do this.
