What is school?

WOW – another thriving and action pack #whatisschool – I love the amazing educators who actively engage and bring new PLN members every week to add to the engaging discussion. People were challenged, pushed and extended as the discussion showed just how passionate #whatisschool educators are. Our topic today was “Student Engagement Vs Work Readiness” as we continued on from our recent #whatisschool discussions about global classrooms and global collaborations

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. 

Today’s discussion involved educators from across the globe, including: New Zealand, The Netherlands, Ireland, Wales, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, USA, Canada, Australia and more.

It was a pleasure to have you there – and we trended across the world AGAIN – incredible (this still blows my mind).

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-student-engagement-vs-work-readines/ – 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, August 21 at 7pm EST (Friday 9am AEST, 11am NZT) as we continue to explore the possibilities #whatisschool
