Welcome To #kidsedchatnz


Welcome to the home of Kidsedchatnz! Kidsedchatnz is a New Zealand school's twitter chat that takes part every Wednesday between 2-3pm.

The aim of Kidsedchatnz is to motivate kids to be active, engaged and connected learners.


Kidsedchatnz was created in 2012 and is currently co-organised by Pascal Dresse, Stephen Baker, Reid Walker, Simone Gentil, Juliet Revell, Marnel van der Spuy and Marcelle Natusch.

To take part in Kidsedchatnz you need to first create a class twitter account. This is free and can be done by clicking here!

Once you have done this you need to get your twitter name added to the Kidsedchatnz twitter list. To do this you need to send a tweet to @kidsedchatnz and I will add you straight away.


You need to get your name on the Kidsedchatnz Twitter list as it allows all the classes taking part to see your tweets.


Once you are on the Kidsedchatnz Twitter list you need to subscribe and follow the list during the session. You can subscribe to the list by clicking here. Here's a video that will help you do this!


An easy way to follow the Kidsedchatnz Twitter list tweets is to use Tweetdeck. Here is a video that explains how to use it.



If you have any questions or concerns please contact me by e-mail at stephen@russellst.school.nz

I hope all this makes sense and we look forward to seeing your class at the next Kidsedchatnz session!
