The collaborative #aisinetwork /#plpnetwork Action Research twitter chat was a rousing success, and we want to keep the knowledge momentum flowing. Join PLPeeps and friends on Twitter for another spectacular evening of connected learning! The next topic for our chat will play off another popular hashtagâ€”#pblchatâ€” but we hope to put our #plpnetwork passion based learning spin on it . Please join us Sunday, January 27th for a Twitter chat around the topic:
PBL: Building a Common Understanding

Passion Based Learning? Project Based Learning? Problem based learning? Maybe you’re not sure what PBL is or how to make it work in your classroom. Or perhaps you’ve been experimenting with PBL and you’re not convinced that you’re doing it “right.” Let’s use this chat to share our tips for success both with the PLP community and beyond. If you are a PBL teacher please come help us dispel the myths.

What is a Twitter chat?
A Twitter chat is a lot like any other online chat, where people gather to talk about a specific issue. The great thing about a Twitter chat is it brings people together from all over world to a central area where they can interact in real time. To join a Twitter chat, you just need to know what hashtag is being used. A hashtag is simply a way to search topics on Twitter and is recognized as a word preceded by a “#,” such as #education or #plpnetwork.
