HASHTAG: #BFC530 on Twitter
PURPOSE: To elevate the voices of educators and come together as a community in order to transform education through daily chats about education.
CONTENT: Education-related topics as suggested by members of the BFC community.
- Founded in July, 2014 by Scott Capro, BFC’s goal was to ensure that every educator who has an interest is supported in building their PLN, and that everyone who joins the chat knows the power of sharing their voice.
- Jessica Raleigh (@TyrnaD) manages the behind-the-scenes work of setting up topics and moderators each week.
- The BFC community suggests discussion topics through a form found on this page.
RELATED HASHTAGS: none
SPECIFIC DAYS: Monday through Fridays at 5:30am Eastern, Central, Mountain, and Pacific Times. (During the summer months, however, the chat is not moderated daily and instead is an ongoing, “slow chat.”)
OTHER INFORMATION: In addition to Twitter chats, the BFC also encourages community members to read and discuss common books, share and read each other’s blogs, continue conversations on Voxer, and meet up in person at educational events. More information can be found on the BFC website.
