#the262 – Book Creator marathon!

Dan KempBlog, Collaboration

On 20 September 2018 we completed our most ambitious project ever – a Twitter marathon – 26.2 hours of collaborative book creation!

A lot of educators take to Twitter to connect to their Professional Learning Network as well as search for items that will help them grow in their craft. One unique way this happens on social media is through Twitter chats. But what happens when you want to think outside the box and go beyond a “basic“ Twitter chat?

#the262 happens.

Wanting to create a unique experience for educators to go hands-on, learn about and use the features within Book Creator as well as participate in a global collaboration, we came up with the idea of doing a Book Creator Twitter chat marathon. 26.2 hours of playing to learn, collaboration and creativity. We decided to release a task every hour on the hour to see who was up for a marathon of learning.

51 educators from around the world took the challenge and were able to complete the tasks. The result is almost 600 pages of awesome. Thanks to everyone who took part!
