#EduDuctTape Twitter Chat 10.9.19

In episode 28 of the Educational Duct Tape Podcast, Mike Mohammad joined me for a chit-chat.  I had a blast interviewing Mike.  Also, in the Soapbox Moment, I discussed my theory that the goal for educators is to be effective not impressive.

A week after the episode went live, I was joined on Twitter by dozens of “Duct Tapers” who were eager to talk about the content from this episode!  Below are some of the best tweets from the chat, curated by me and some of the #EduDuctTape “Mighty Ducts” volunteers.

Below, you’ll find those selected responses for each question.  As always, since Q1 was silly & fun, we’ll save that one for last.  Check it all out below!


Q2 focused on this episode’s SoapBox Moment: “Effective vs. Impressive.”

Q4 focused on the following question: “How can learners create a profile of themselves as a learner to share with an audience beyond the classroom?”

Q5 is based off of the “What else do you know that I haven’t asked you yet?” technique that some teachers use in assessments!

Q1 And Now back to the beginning! In the episode, Mike shared 3 hysterical statements for 2 Truths & 1 Lie. You’ll have to listen to figure out which one was the lie… but you can see everyone else’s fun responses here:
