I have tried to include as much as could in my video below, but 7 minutes (7:34) just really isn't that long when you are trying to squeeze everything from an entire semester into it!...

A new world found in Twitter Ed chats

I have heard about twitter chats before, they sometimes have on reality shows or after a special episode where viewers can chat with the stars, but I had no idea how it worked.
