#whatisschool archive 04.12.14 “Global Collaborative Projects”

What is school?

#whatisschool occurs every week at 6pm EST and again this week you were outstanding! People came back from Thanksgiving in style and rocked it, helping us to trend in 5 different countries around the world! Global Collaboration was our theme this week and it was inspiring to hear what you already do and what you plan to do to best support learning in your classrooms.
For those of you who are new to Twitter Chats or #whatisschool, we meet every Thursday 6pm EST 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).

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 notificationsIt 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 – – 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, December 11 at 6pm EST (Friday 9am AEST, 12pm NZT, 7am Singapore) as we continue to explore the possibilities #whatisschool

  • Hello Craig! I’m a teacher of 20 years from Thunder Bay, Canada. I’ll look forward to #whatisschool chat. I’d like to discuss my students’ Give4ChristmasChallenge project that encourages people from around the world to share or start a tradition of giving this Christmas and then use our website as a means to challenge colleagues, friends, families, businesses and organizations to do the same. The website is inspired by a tradition of giving that we have been doing for the past 20 years at St. Elizabeth School. To date we have 20 contributors, 2300 views and 40+ countries in the world! My students’ goal is 100 contributors, 10 000 views and 100 countries by Christmas! Can you help my students reach their goal by contributing and challenging EVERYONE YOU KNOW to do the same? You’ll help make the world a better place this Christmas and help teach my students and yours the positive power of technology and social media! Merry Christmas!!
