Mark your calendar NOW October 19th-23rd


Join us for our first ever #OPSDigCitCulture Twitter Slow Chat. An easy way you AND the teachers in your school can participate in #DigCitWeek! We will be launching our first Slow Chat during the #DigCitWeek October 19th-23rd.


Each day a Question will be posted from our Twitter accounts: @Mrs_GlimmerED & @OPSTechTrainers. Then you respond to the question by including BOTH of the following 2 hashtags #DigCitWeek & #OPSDigCitCulture whenever is convenient for you!


What is a Twitter Chat you ask? Learn more here: https://youtu.be/q0OYSwAz8J8

or a more detailed demonstration go here https://youtu.be/3Uoqoc7hNIE


What is a Slow Chat you ask? The quick answer is instead of the typical 60 min Twitter chat the moderator questions are posted and participants can answer over 24hours or a week. So you have the flexibility of answering when is best for you! Great for busy educators like you that still want to connect. Here is a blog post all about it. https://2footgiraffe.wordpress.com/2020/07/09/twitter-slow-chat/


Get a sneak peek at the questions for the chat below so you can plan your answers. Can't wait to learn with you! Click each to view larger.
