What is school?

Week after week I am blown away at the response we get from #whatisschool

Just 5 weeks ago Laura and I started this chat, with the intention of capturing an audience of global educators wanting to make a difference in our schools all over the world. We have found you and we are constantly growing (stats to come soon). Again today, you blew our minds. We had well over 100 inspirational educators and leaders from all corners of the globe waging in on the topic of global classrooms. 

As #whatisschool grows, so does our ability to connect, collaborate and network. Make sure that you come along each week and every time introduce a colleague or valued member of your PLN to our chat. We don’t want anyone to miss out on what has become something very special. We have some very exciting things coming very soon so watch this space.


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, Czech Republic, Egypt, New Zealand, England, Ireland Wales, El Salvador, Argentina and more.

It was a pleasure to have you there – and we trended in 5 countries AGAIN – incredible! #whatisschool is getting bigger and better thanks to you.

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.

Here is the archive of our chat via @storify – https://storify.com/mrkempnz/what-is-school-the-global-classroom-whatisschool – 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.

Join us Thursday, July 24 at 7pm EST (Friday 9am AEST, 11am NZT) as we continue to explore the possibilities #whatisschool
