Well, we have finished another outstanding year of collaborating on #MEMSPAchat. Now that our fourth year is complete, there is some data that I’d like to share, some thank you’s, what’s in store for #MEMSPAchat in the future as well as what we have in the hopper as it pertains to future technology learning opportunities at MEMSPA.
There are so many things to say about how the chat has grown over the last four years. Funny to think how we when we started in 2014 we have 3 people on the chat with a total of 28 constructive tweets within an hours time. Now, the chat pretty much runs itself, producing hundreds of tweets and collaborations within a given hour. Each one of these tweets is a connection, a collaboration, and a collection of ideas that are shared from one leader to another. If you think about it, when each question is posed on #MEMSPAchat, there are more than 20 or 30 people connecting and collaborating about the question. With each response the same number of people see each other’s answer and the connections through each question/answer, as well as the connections on the side, are nearly endless. It’s now become like a ripple effect in a pond. Ultimately, the collection of ideas on #MEMSPAchat has grown exponentially, and we are proud to say that we are one of the lead educational chats for principals and lead educators statewide, regionally, and often times nationally.
