Update [05.20.2011]: Sarah Kaiser made one of these too, and it may be more up to date than the one below.
I few weeks back I recognized a need for all of the hashtags and twitter chats to have a single calendar that could be added to my own Google Calendar. I looked around for such a thing, but all I found was a really nice list of every chat with dates and times. I have compiled this list into a Google Calendar that I would like to share.
Here is what I would love to happen:
- Other folks would comment on this blog post and ask for me to share the calendar with them directly so that they can add their own educational chats and information (including links and documents that might be important) about the chats in the description section of each chat.
- Anyone who wants to, can add this calendar to their Google Calendars so that they can stay up on when these great educational events are happening each week.
- We share this calendar (with all of its contributions) to any new teacher, administrator, parent or student that gets interested in the educational conversations happening on twitter.
If all of those things happened, I believe the communities we are all trying to create will have a much better understanding of what the entire community is up to. We will be able to pay attention when it is time to do so, and learn from one another much more easily.
Without further ado, here is how you can access the calendar:
Here is the code for you in case you want to embed it too:
<iframe src=”https://www.google.com/calendar/b/0/embed?title=Educational%20Twitter%20Chats&mode=WEEK&height=500&wkst=1&bgcolor=%23FFFFFF&src=9k50j34spec6pailr59uo2becg%40group.calendar.google.com&color=%23060D5E&ctz=America%2FDenver” style=” border-width:0 ” width=”600″ height=”500″ frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no”>
Use this if you want to see only the calendar without adding it to your own Google Calendars.
Copy and Paste this into your Google Calendar to add the whole calendar: firstname.lastname@example.org
Use this one if you want to add the calendar to another program besides Google Calendar (iCal, Outlook, etc.)
Please let me know if I can provide this calendar in any other format. I’m looking forward to the conversation about the conversation.
Awesome! Sifting through the noise can be tough..this will allow folks to get in and out via the hashtags.
That is my greatest hope for sure. I just think it is helpful to put eventsrnon your calendar rather than being surprised when they turn up or missingrnout.

Hi Ben, wow! I wish I had known about this – I actually just did the same thing as you a few days ago; I probably should have searched around online a little harder first. Here’s my version:
Mine differs a bit from yours, I’m not sure if that’s because there have been changes since August 2010, but just wanted to share this with you! I don’t mind which one is used, but I think it would be great if cybraryman added this to his website about twitter chats…it’s the first thing that comes up on google, or one of them, and the calendar format is much easier to read. What do you think?
Thank you so much for setting up yours as well. I haven’t really modified
mine too much, but I would be more than happy to link to yours off of this
blog post. Have you reached out to Cybraryman?
