Last weekend I trialled the idea of using Twitter and Google Docs to gather ideas and inspiration about the topic Zoos. Basically I asked people to contribute their ideas and suggestions either through Twitter using the #PTZoos hashtag or on a Google Doc. This worked quite well with a few people adding ideas and suggestions however the key thing about the idea was to get people discussing and developing the ideas live on Twitter. I have seen this work fantastically well both for myself and others. Many a time I have tweeted the beginnings of an idea and this has grown into something really exciting thanks to the input of others.
This week I want to try it slightly differently and restrict the contributions to Twitter on Saturday from 11.30 am to 12.30 pm. This week the topic will be Space and it would be great if you could join in by using the hashtag #PTSpace on Saturday. What I’d really like is for people to contribute ideas and not necessarily just describe things they have done. Even if you aren’t teaching the topic Space it would be great to get your ideas and these can be for any age group.
Look forward to all your inspirational ideas.
