If you have served as a volunteer in developing countries, or if you are interested in the concept, please join the discussion.

Participants in Learning2gether are welcome to join those in BaW in a Tweetmeet to be held June 9 from 19:00 GMT
BaW (Becoming a Webhead; http://evosessions.pbworks.com/w/page/61740277/2013BaW) are an ongoing EVO session <http://evosessions.pbworks.com> that take on topics from time to time between EVO events each January.
In this scheme, June 2-9 is dedicated to Twitter; e.g.
Jessy Gallagher, Twitter in the Classroom
A Tweetmeet is where users of a common #hashtag communicate synchronously on Twitter.
BaW coordinator Teresa Almeida d’Eca notes that BaW have done this before. The intro to the TweetMeet2 page recaps a recent one: “it all boils down to going to Twitter and start messaging with the (to be announced) hashtag.”
The hashtag for this one is #13baw – As Teresa says “It’s totally free of people at this point”

tweeting away to your hearts delight. 🙂
