What is School? “Celebrating Differences in Perspective & Practice”

#whatisschool continues to shine and continues to engage educators from all over the world each and every week!
This week will be just as big as #whatisschool welcomes the incredible Jennifer Williams. Come and join us this week to discuss Celebrating differences in Perspective and Practice where we ask you to share the view through your window.

Each day, in schools across the world, children and teachers gather to seek out knowledge and discover new learning. Though similar in many ways, our schools truly are each unique–every one different and special in both practice and design. Join us for #whatisschool this week as we ask everyone to share on “A View through My Window: Celebrating Differences in Perspective & Practice.”

You are also invited to capture photos of your school to share throughout the chat on topics of arrival, announcements, space design, nutrition, and outdoors. For our final question, we’d love to see and learn how you infuse your personal passions into your school! With shared stories from schools near and far, our views of “what is school” can extend beyond the walls of our buildings to best support the needs of all our students of the world.
