What is school?

#whatisschool always gets me excited and this weeks’ evaluation discussion was amazing. There was a huge amount of discussion about this and it was obvious how passionate #whatisschool educators are.
Massive apologies about the timezone confusion. EDT has now moved to EST and I was unaware – the chat will now be at 6pm EST from now on so please readjust your diaries and reminders to suit. See below to get the official reminders for #whatisschool for FREE.
As a result of this, we actually ran 2 amazing chats. I ran one from 6-7pm EST and then the Amazing Mark Weston came in to run from 7-8pm EST while I was in class teaching 🙂 A HUGE thank you to Mark! I
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).
