CanvasLIVE 8/30/2016: Chatter, Chatter, Everywhere!

Blog Post created by biray@instructure.com Administrator on Aug 30, 2016

We've over 100 community members in the chatroom and already a full season of Twitter Chats lined up! There is chatter, chatter everywhere in CanvasLIVE!

 

I've heard of a #CanvasChat ...

 

If you've never participated in a Twitter chat before, here's your chance. A "Twitter chat" is a public Twitter conversation around one unique hashtag. In CanvasLIVE (depending on who's hosting the chat), each chat might have a different hashtag. 

 

This season TONYA MERCER is hosting a series of Twitter chats specifically for the K12 audience with the hashtag #canvas4elem. Don't miss the one tonight at #Canvas4Elem: Making Canvas Elementary Friendly!

 

We will also continue our general #canvaschat season every other Tuesday at 4pm MST. Next week we have David Lyons bringing you the best of #CanvasChat: Canvas. Mic Drop.

 

And later in September, Dr Rimmer is starting her Twitter Chats #k12canvaswk1: "But, I don't really like computers..."

 

RSVP. And get ready for a full hour of fun.

 

... But a Dad Chat?

 

Outside of Twitter, there's a whole lotta other chat happening in our chatrooms. Not only are we starting to see some interesting live conversation unfold, but members are creating different open forums or chatrooms, too!

 

Ryan Seilhamer created a channel for mobile (of course); Eddie Walker jumped in with "PLC for Math Teachers"; and, Jeffrey Brady launched "third-party tools" channel. But no one expected Stuart Ryan to create a place for "Dad Jokes" (Okay, maybe Jordan Dayton expected it).

 

CanvasLIVE continues to be a place for live chatter. Be it on Twitter or in a chatroom!
