#Txed held its first chat on May 23, 2012. The goal of #txed is to be the primary connection point for Texas Educator's Personal Learning Networks.
Early in May of 2012, Carrie Ross (@msrossenglish) formulated the idea of using the #txed hashtag and creating a weekly chat using #txed. After linking up with and selecting Tra Hall (tra_hall) and Troy Mooney (@troymooney) as the co-moderators, Wednesday night at 830 Central was selected as the official chat time.
Ms. Ross maintains the http://txed.wikispaces.com which is the official home for #txed and contains the archives from previous chats.
On June 13, 2012, at the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals Conference (@tassp1), #txed was held from the Austin Downtown Hilton and included the first ever face to face meeting of many of the participants.
