#tlchat

Let's start #tlchat!
It just occurred to me this morning that there'd be a very easy way to separate the important teacher-librarian tweets from the regular stream of hundreds of wonderful tweets many of us get each day. Yes, I use lists as a tool, but sometimes I would like an even more focused discussion.

In the spirit of #edchat (the series of discussions that won last year's Edublogs Award for Most Influential Tweet Series), let's separate out some of our own discussions so that they will be more findable and appear as more fluid conversations. Let's also use the hashtag to propose discussion questions.

So when you tweet, and the tweet is really aimed for the school library community, simply use this hashtag #tlchat and let's see what develops.
