#BigBeacon Twitter chat – Apr 27 – Accelerating Student Technology Invention & Innovation for Scalable Impact
Join VentureWell on Wednesday, April 27 at 8 p.m. ET for a Twitter discussion about:…
The Big Beacon is a Movement to Transform Engineering Education, and
was organized to catalyze a global social movement around this goal. The Big Beacon connects dots among individuals and organizations to collaboratively disrupt the status quo, thereby bringing about change to align engineering education with the creativity imperative of our times.
One of the ways in which we do this, is by hosting a weekly Twitter Chat on topics related to transforming engineering education. We often have guest hosts and panelists from organizations, industry, and all segments of education, including students, teachers, professors, and parents alike. We allow our manifesto to guide our conversations, spur discussion, and initiate change. We invite and welcome everyone to participate on Wednesdays at 8 PM EST; follow #BigBeacon.
When: Every Wednesday at 8 PM EST
How: Sign on to Twitter and use #BigBeacon (type in search bar) to follow along and participate.
Who: Engineers, Professors, Teachers, Students, Parents, Business Leaders, and anyone who cares about engineering education!
What: Every week, we have a different topic related to engineering education. Check out the Big Beacon Blog for a post on an upcoming chat.

Do you like what you’ve read in the Big Beacon manifesto? Would you like to collaborate with Big Beacon? Do you have an idea about a chat topic? If so, then you could be a future
guest host for one of our weekly chats. Being a guest host is a great experience and it allows you to improve awareness of your brand, and expand your network. Even if you have never tweeted or chatted, we can guide you through the process. Contact Meagan Pollock for more information.
If you’ve never Twitter chatted before, don’t worry; it’s very easy. First, get a Twitter account if you don’t already have one, and log in. At 8 PM ET on Wednesday go to twitter.com and type #BigBeacon into the search box on Twitter. Thereafter all the tweets with the hashtag #BigBeacon will show up on your Twitter page. To participate, simply express your opinion by sending a tweet, and be sure to append the hashtag #BigBeacon so other members of the Twitter Chat see you are posting. Alternatively, automate the hashtag search and append feature by using the free service Tchat at http://www.tchat.io. For more information, read a longer post here.
