What’s a Twitter Chat? A Twitter Chat is a guided conversation where users interested in a particular topic hop onto the social network to chat. The chat is given a hashtag, which makes it easy for anyone to identify the chat and participate. It’s a topic-driven conversation happening in real time, similar to a public chat room; it just happens to take place on Twitter.

#NGLCchat occurs once a month, each time featuring a different aspect of personalized learning.
