Join SLAM for an #nctechat!

SLAM will be hosting the first #NCTEchat of 2016 on January 17th at 8pm EST. This is a one hour period to informally dialogue on Twitter with other educators across the globe interested in multimedia, literacies, and English education. We hope you’ll join us!

If you’ve never participated in a Twitter chat, it’s pretty easy! (You’ll need to make an account on Twitter). There are a couple of simple tutorials if you are feeling interested. You can read instructions here or watch a short video here. But, really, even if you just search for #nctechat on Twitter around 8 p.m. est, you should be able to follow along with the conversation (and anything you type should include “#nctechat” in the tweet to be seen by others)… the rest are more advanced tools you can learn later on.4adc697b-4c15-48aa-9c4e-620d1f942001
