Hi all

I am keen to keep momentum going after a great first effort last week. I am keen to host a #ScotEdChat session on the theme of ‘Character, Values and Citizenship’ in education. I could do so on Thursday 19th November. What do you reckon?

I just wanted to ask:

  • I know that some suggested themes for further chats were submitted by those involved last week, do we have any dates in place? Don’t want to step on any toes!
  • In terms of chat format – last week seemed to work so well that I am tempted to suggest we stick with that format for chat on 19th Nov i.e. 1 hour 8.30pm-9.30pm, with an invitation to carry on in a #slowchat format until 26th Nov. My summary blog piece can cover the initial chat on 19th and will also summarise any further contributions made until 26th.
  • In terms of chats beyond 26th Nov – how about we offer the option to hosts of committing to a ‘standard chat only’ such as last week i.e. 1 hour 8.30-9.30 – or a ‘standard chat plus’ i.e. the format I have described above including a #slowchat

Any thoughts? If there are no objections I’ll just go ahead and start promoting the chat for 19th Nov as described above.
