#whatisschool archive 16.10.14 “Homework & Learning”

What is school?

Today #whatisschool was all about homework and learning. We knew this topic would spark up some emotion because homework is something that you either love or you hate. It was incredible to see the passionate discussion today and people having their own discussions on this topic.
It is great to be back from Presenting in New Zealand and back into the reality of supporting staff and students in my learning community. Thank you to everyone for your amazing support with #whatisschool – the turn out is always incredible!
For those of you who are new to Twitter Chats or #whatisschool, we meet every Thursday 7pm EDT to discuss the important issues in Education and this discussion forms an impressive archive of learning for everyone involved. All you have to do is jump on twitter at this time every week and use the hashtag #whatisschool and contribute (or just lurk).
