Outside from many other benefits Twitter is a place where we learn.

In this chat you are invited to get deeper in how we learn, what kind of stuff we learn, how we progress in our learning and share some great experiences. Twitter Chats are really the experience we have in mind. What kind of things are we taking away from those chats. How this learning happen. Who do we met there and do we form relationship that impact our learning journey. When does retention happen, is being present live sufficient to make this learning durable. Is really learning after all ? Could we share cases where Twitter chats ended up changing our attitude or behaviour. This first chat of #pkmchat is going to be like a reflection on chats themselves, since many of us are experienced Twitter chatters. Learning is with Knowledge hoarding, sharing and relating a pillar of Personal Knowledge Management, the topic of this weekly chat. In future events we may explore other type of learning experience but also how we share, write, organize our Knowledge.
