#CompEdUk – A hashtag is born

The new curriculum seems to have fragmented the Twitter community of ICT/Computing teachers into several different discussion groups.  I’ve been running out of space on my tweets trying to use all the hashtags to cover all bases.  Various hashtags being used are:

  • #ictcurric
  • #computing
  • #compatsch
  • #digitalstudies
  • #compsci

In an effort to provide a focal point or the discussion (and leave us some characters left in our tweets), a few of us on the CAS forums have suggested the use of a new hashtag for Computing related tweets.  It is *drumroll*

#CompEdUK

Please join the discussion and collaboration on Twitter by simply searching for the hashtag or including it in your tweets.

Update – The Power of Twitter

After finishing this blog post, I started publicising the hashtag on Twitter.  Less than 10 minutes later, Alan O’Donohoe (@teknoteacher) tweeted with this series of FREE webinars for computing teachers. Instant free CPD. How’s that?
