I am a few days late on sharing the archive, but I have at last pulled the Tweets to share with everyone.
After a long break from chats we have resumed and Tuesday night was another good session. It was not as loaded as they were before I took a break, but the discussion was good and high quality.
I had a first by having the author of the book where I gathered the ideas from join the chat. Thanks to Liz Wiseman for jumping in and joining us.
The archive of the chat can be found here. Be sure to start at the bottom and read up.
We will chat again Tuesday night. Tuesday is a busy night for chats so we will have to work hard to carve out our time.
Thanks to everyone who joined. Keep the learning alive.
Last, here is my review of the book Multipliers if interested. I just ordered her book that is based on education to find out what more I can learn. And no, I do not get any kickback for the title suggestion as someone asked of me. I just like to share great reads when I find them.
When: Every Tuesday
Time: 8:00 pm central time
After a brier hiatus from running the #coffeechugPLN chats, it has now returned. Please come join us for a great hour of discussion this Tuesday, July 9th. This week we will be talking about leadership. The ideas will be based on book Multipliers by Liz Wiseman. You do not have to read the book to join. Perhaps the discussion will motivate you to read this book.
Depending on chat, this might become a two part series. Here are the questions I have prepared for the chat in case you want to prepare a bit ahead.
Q0: Introductions and what you have learned this week.
Q1: How do some leaders create intelligence around them, while others diminish it?
Q2: What could you accomplish if you could get twice as much from people?
Q3: What could you change or influence to get 2x as much from people? How do you do this?
Q4: How do you create a safe, open environment, but also relentlessly demand the best thinking and work of those around you?
Q5: How do you create intrigue rather than apprehension?
Q6: How does one become more curious?
Q7: When something is off the rails, do you take over or do you invest? When you take the pen to add your ideas, do you give it back? Or does it stay in your pocket?
Q8: What would cause other people to become smarter and more capable around you?
Q9: What could people figure out on their own if you just gave them more space?
Q10: How can you get the full brainpower of your team or school/staff?
Q11: What is your Mission Impossible that you are going to tackle this year?
What an AWESOME chat last night!
I could not believe how rapid fire the ideas and tweets were coming in last night. It was so much fun hearing from everyone. I am going to have to go back and read through it all as I was not able to keep up with all the conversations.
Last night we talked about Positive Reinforcement and how we should/should not use it when working to help students and others accomplish great things. What is interesting is how we all have the same goal in mind, but there are so many ways to achieve this way.

What was cool was that I checked the trending topics and our chat was #1
How cool to be trending number 1. You guys rock on the #coffeechugPLN network. Not bad for being a month old. twitter.com/coffeechugbook…

I did not get a chance to share out all my ideas and thoughts during the chat so I created an Evernote page link to share with you some further thoughts – https://www.evernote.com/shard/s31/sh/9281951a-f95d-42f3-b63b-222d332d5384/90ea5bd04af27bcffa9ed6014fdf4483
Take a look back at the archive and my Evernote page. If you have further questions or ideas please share on #coffeechugPLN on Twitter. I am working up the material for the next chat and if something good comes from all of this we can continue to the conversation.
I look forward to adding some new faces to my PLN and connecting again in the future.
A few days behind due to a crazy schedule this week, but here is a link to the archive of our #coffeechugPLN Twitter Chat from Tuesday. The chat was another success where we continued our conversation on Mindset.
It is intriguing to hear how we view mindset between fixed vs. growth. I would love to keep this conversation going, but it is good to keep things fresh so next we will move to another topic. Perhaps we will jump back into mindset in the future.
Thank you to everyone who joined the chat. There were some dynamic people sharing ideas and thoughts.

Chat #3: Mindset Chat #2 based on research of Carol Dweck.
We will be diving back into the topic of Mindset after a great chat on this topic last week. This will be covering ideas from chapters 2 and 3 from the book Mindset by Carol Dweck for those that have the book and want to follow along.

I have posted the questions that I will be using for the chat Tuesday night for those that like to see things ahead of time and prepare a bit. If you don’t want to see it ahead of time, don’t go there and look!
See you Tuesday night!
Wow! Last night we had a great chat. As I continue to explore Twitter and run chats(this was my second one) I am loving my PLN more and more. Much thanks to everyone who showed up last night. The design of the chat last night was to start off with questions to get the members reflecting on themselves and ideas and then moving forward to think more whole school and whole child application with mindset. I think it went very well and that was because the participants were very open and honest. Without them, the chat suffers.
I really look forward to continuing this talk about mindset. We will be running a mini series of Twitter chats on Mindset over the next few weeks.
Here is a link to the archive of the chat – Remember to start at the bottom and read up.
Check it out and be sure to follow these people if you are not already doing so. Some are experts and others are teachers new to Twitter who have been following the self paced Twitter for Educator course I put together.
I will be sending out details on the next #coffeechugPLN Mindset Part 2 chat later this week along with questions in case you want prepare ahead of time.
Until next time, work on creating that growth mindset in yourself, students, and kids.
Thank you to everyone who attended our first ever #coffeechugPLN chat last night. The goal was to help teachers new to Twitter get a sense of a chat and learn to make new connections and put into practice all the things they have been learning.
I did archive the chat and you can read all tweets from the chat. The first chat entry is at the bottom and you will have to work your way up to the top to follow the chat.
We had a nice group of people pop in throughout the night. Be sure to check them out on Twitter give them a follow. I believe we had 22 people(not including myself) add to the chat last night. I am quite happy with that turnout for my first ever chat.
Here is the list of participants last night. Some are veteran Twitter experts and some are brand new. Do your part to connect and meet each of these people.
I thought the chat went good for the first time. I know that I can moderate a bit better and will on some things to improve the next time I host a chat. I know to have some resources available. I thought I had things planned out well enough, but I think I can do better. I am also going to try out Twitterchat next time. A few of my tweets did not have the hashtag and I was told Twitterchat automatically adds the hashtag.
This is what I love. As I try to help others learn and improve I find myself constantly learning as well.
This conversation has lead me to add some more to the Twitter for Educator self paced course I have been working on. It was great to actually talk with the educators and find out what they need. I will be adding Tasks 10 and 11 later this week based on the conversation.
Thank you everyone for a great hour of discussion last night. Check the chat archive linked above and all resources and upcoming events will be shared on the #coffeechugPLN Twitter chat page.
If you have questions, additional resources based on the chat please leave a comment or tweet to #coffeechugPLN. I am working to do another chat in two weeks so if you have a good topic, please send my way.
I have been working on a self paced course to help teachers new to Twitter learn the overall feel and process of this great networking tool.
We are now ready to try out Twitter Chats and I thought it would be great to host our very own. Please consider joining us to help offer your expertise as well as helping teachers new to Twitter.
When? Tuesday, April 23rd
Time? 8:30 pm central time
What is the #coffeechugPLN chat about on April 23rd? I am working with educators new to Twitter to become more connected and to enhance their Twitter networks. This first chat is designed to help them learn how a chat works and how to participate in one of these.
What is the outline/questions of the chat?
I will be using questions based off the first chat by #ksed because I feel that those questions would work for this first session. I have modified and tweaked them a bit, but the overall feel of that chat will be similar.
Q1 Please share where you are from and your experience with Twitter, Twitter chats, etc.
Q2 For the twitter chat veterans out there, what are some of your favorite live chats? Why? When do they happen?
Q3 Some hashtags aren’t live chats. Which are your favorite to go learn from at any time of day? Why are they your fave?
Q4 How has Twitter impacted your teaching?
Q5 Looking ahead: What are topics that need to be addressed on Twitter? What should future chats be about?
Q6 If this is your first live Twitter chat, what questions do you have about anything here? If you’re a veteran, what should they be asking?
Q7 Last official question of the evening, who are people that you’d recommend for all educators to follow on Twitter?
