Two weeks ago the word slowetwiam didn't exist. Now, it is a lively buzzword that has attracted teachers from Europe and beyond to learning and sharing on Twitter.
More than 1,000 tweets, retweets and replies have been sent out by 90 teachers over the past 5 days! Some teachers actively participated from the beginning to the very end, while others chimed in whenever they could. Our tweets have been delivered to Twitter timelines more than 2,283,000 times!
We had our ups and downs during the chat:
We discussed five topics and inspired each other with so many great ideas.

After #slowetwiam I´m ready to get back to school with new ideas on Sept 4. Thank you, @abfromz, for organizing this event. pic.twitter.com/NVWk4zQneE— Alena Jandlova (@AlenaJandlova) August 25, 2017
#slowetwiam chat was so inspiring that it got sketched and wordled by two very creative teachers:

At the end of this incredible event, I'm tremendously proud that #slowetwiam has been so successful. And yes, it might have been slow in that it lasted for full 5 days, but it was very very intense, passionate, warm, heartfelt .... and fast and furious, just the way I like it!
