Special Edition #PEChat
by Joey Feith
If you have participated in a #pechat before, you’ll know that our weekly #physed chat takes place every Monday. The chat goes on all day, but is moderated in different hour-long portions by some of the leaders within the #physed community.
The topics, which are selected after the community votes in our weekly polls, vary from week-to-week. To participate in the chat is simple: simply be on Twitter during one of the moderated time slots and follow/participate in the chat by searching for #pechat via Twitter’s “Search” feature.
For this week’s #pechat (which will take place on Monday October 7th 2013), the format will be slightly different. Here’s how:
In this week’s discussion, the tweets made will be used for a research project, led by Ashley Casey, exploring ways to engage girls in physical education.
The comments made will be analyzed and presented in a book chapter, a conference presentation and a research paper. Since the comments are already in the public domain and can be easily traced we ask you not to identify your school, colleagues or the names of your students.
For further information please follow the following link:
If you do not want your comments or your name to be used for research purposes, please feel free to join in the discussion.
For a while now, I have been trying to see where we can take #pechat next. I think that getting the community involved in this type of research is an awesome opportunity to showcase the power of Twitter and #pechat. I’m really looking forward to seeing how this goes, and I truly hope that you will join us.
Thanks for reading and happy tweeting!
