We are off to a flying start this year with the first tweetchat of the year run as a joint tweetchat with the folks at #BYOD4L Bring your own device for learning. #BYOD4L is a free open online 5 day course that anyone can join in to explore how mobile devices can be used in learning and teaching.
Facilitators from the last community edition of #BYOD4L in January 2018 would like our wonderful community to feedback on ideas for the next version of the event which will run in 2019. This is a great opportunity to get involved in the planning and organisation and help to shape the next iteration of the event, we are looking for willing volunteers to help organise, facilitate and participate. Join Debbie Baff and Suzanne Faulkner on Wednesday 16th January 2019 for a fun filled and fast tweetchat and get those ideas flowing … Warning there may be bitmojis and / or gifs!
