What is school?
Today #whatisschool welcomed educational extraordinaire Steven Anderson to the Co-Moderator role today and we were not disappointed. Steven is an inspiration to many around the world and with over 100,000 twitter followers, he connects and shares his learning to encourage others to innovate and inspire in the classroom.
#whatisschool continues to grow and it is an absolute honour to have created this space and to see the development within it.
Thank you for being a part of it and please continue to share and engage your PLN as well. It is great to see new people coming along every week and actively participating in what is quickly becoming one of the most engaging chats on the twitter calendar.
This week we trended across the globe again. Our topic was “EdTech” as we looked at how technology is being used in schools across the globe and our ideal environments and uses of technology with a particular focus on Social Media and Future trends. The archive of this week’s chat is below.
As #whatisschool grows, so does our ability to connect, collaborate and network – keep inviting your PLN and make sure you sign up to our Remind notifications. It is always a pleasure to have you here!
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-edtech2-whatisschool-by-mrkempnz – 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.
