What is school?
Today #whatisschool was all about connected learning in celebration of Connected Educators Month! Unfortunately I couldn’t make all of today’s session and neither could Laura. We are both out and about at conferences. I am currently in Manila and the wifi connection is less than ideal. A HUGE thank you to Brett and Mark for jumping in and leading the way today. It was the first time both Laura and I let go of it all but what a huge success it has been. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
As usual, the #whatisschool PLN didn’t disappoint with a trend setting display of inspirational tweets and discussion threads based around the 6 weekly questions.
For those of you who are new to Twitter Chats or , 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).
#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.
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/MRsalakas/whatisschool-connected-educator-edition – 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.
Join us Thursday, October 9 at 7pm EST (Friday 9am AEST, 12pm NZT, 7am S’pore) as we continue to explore the possibilities #whatisschool
