On June 7, 2012, we held our first #literacies chat. To announce the topic for the evening, I had written:
“For our first week, we’d like to know what brings each of us to the table, so to speak. How do our educational, research and personal interests in contemporary literacies connect and build on each other? We are bound to learn quite a bit from each other as we share insights, resources, interests and concerns, but before we dive in, let’s take a moment to get to know each other.”
Though we decided there was far too much to say and share in the five minutes we had left, several shared great people to follow on and off Twitter, as well as other communities and blogs which we felt had pushed our thinking in contemporary #literacies.
