What is School? “Back to School”

#whatisschool is back again and I am thrilled to welcome back a colleague of mine in Singapore, Adam Torrens to co-host this week’s chat with me. We will be talking about coming Back to School with a Bang – for those of us in the US and UK (Northern Hemisphere) education systems.

This week as educators prepare to return to the classroom after summer and winter break, #whatisschool takes a look at the first day back and ways you can make those moments with a new class one that will set the tone for a fantastic year in your school.
