Thank you to everyone who joined today’s #whatisschool chat. I love being connected with so many incredible educators in my PLN. Today’s discussion involved educators from across the globe, including, USA, Singapore, Thailand, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England, Wales, Argentina and more.
I was inspired by discussions of ‘future proofing’ and how people passionately believed that they were doing a great job in not educating for the workforce but to create passionate, engaged, creative and critical thinking lifelong learners.
It was a pleasure to have you there – and we trended in 5 countries – incredible! #whatisschool is getting bigger and better thanks to you. I challenge you to bring along a friend next time and introduce them to, what I believe, is the best form of PD available for educators. Better yet, you get to network with some of the most inspirational leaders in education.
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.
Unfortunately we had some major issues with archiving the chat this morning – the system on storify continued to shutdown and wouldn’t allow us to add all tweets so this is only a partial archive – apologies – we are looking into better archiving systems for future chats – Here is the archive of our chat via @storify – https://storify.com/mrkempnz/what-is-school-teaching-for-future-jobs-whatisscho – 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.
If you have any questions you would like to discuss or areas of interest within the relm of #whatisschool please contact me via twitter @mrkempnz
