What is school? And how does our impression of it change the way we teach?
Thank you to everyone who joined the conversation at #whatisschool today. It was a pleasure to have you all with us and an absolute honor (honour for my Kiwi and Aussie pals) to have such a positive response to our discussions.
We have done our best to create an edchat space where people can express an unbiased response to questions about schooling, where educators have a voice in shaping the future through their experience, recommendations and interests.
What sparked my interest today was the passion and obvious enthusiasm from educators who joined the conversation about the changes they would make if given an opportunity. It is so amazing to see the passion shared by people. We can make a difference. We have to stand up and be counted and #whatisschool is one of many avenues for this.
I was particularly interested in the conversations moving into creativity and entrepreneurship and I would like to continue this conversation next week.
Here is the archive of our chat via @storify – https://storify.com/mrkempnz/whatisschool-1-archive-13-6-14#publicize – Please share and make sure you join the conversation next week.
Every week we will post a short reflection like this after our discussion and provide the links to our archive through Storify (as above). Every Monday we will also share the questions for the upcoming session via twitter and our blogs.
