Twitter Chat: #edbean
For over a year, Edbean has hosted a weekly Twitter chat at #VidEd. The online discussion ran like a book club, basing the chat on a new educational video each week. #VidEd was a lot of fun, and we thank everyone who joined us each week. However, we have decided to change the hashtag and open the discussion to more than just educational videos.
Join us twice a month (times and dates will be posted), on Tuesday nights at #edbean, as we dive into a variety of interesting educational topics. We are excited to continue the incredible professional development that Twitter offers. Join us for a Tuesday night chat and, please consider joining our growing community here at edbean.com.
