How to #Chat

NOTE: Please review all of the PAGES in this group for more information.

A chat works best when a specific topic is chosen. For example, every Wednesday English language teachers participate in a moderated chat on Twitter called #ELTchat. We discuss a different topic each week. Sometimes we talk about grammar. Sometime we talk about technology. After the chat a volunteer writes a summary blog post! 


Who is the moderator in a moderated chat?

You don't have to be admin to be a moderator in a moderated chat. You just have to be a leader. Any mature person in the MyEC chat room can be a leader. If you want to host a weekly chat at a certain time, start a discussion below! Teachers and learners are welcome to try.

What is the # for?

The # defines the topic. We tried a #musicchat a #foodchat an #examchat and a #happychat. During #happychat we talked about things that made us happy. When people start to get bored of the topic, the moderator can change it. For example, Katy wanted to change the subject to #sadchat. This worked well. Some topics, such as #religionchat may not be good for MyEC. These topics make people say mean things. It is better to talk about heated topics face to face. Annoying members will suggest annoying topics. Just ignore them!

What about people who don't want to participate?

The NEW MyEC chat has an IGNORE button. Simply ignore anyone who is not participating. (They won't even realize you did it. You don't have to feel bad about it.) Or, ignore anyone who is being rude. (Watch the video to see how well this works. Practise with a friend to make sure you know how to ignore annoying members.)

How do I address someone specifically in a moderated chat?

Use @ to respond to someone specifically.

For example: @Ario What's your favourite team? #sportschat

What about private chat?

Try to stay in the main room during a moderated chat. Don't bother the moderator or other chatters by starting private chats. If someone tries to have a private chat with you, ignore that person.

Let's collect a large list of chat topics that MyEC chatters can use when the main room needs to focus on something.

Watch an example of a #chat on MyEC.
