I am part of an AWESOME team of educators from New York who are starting to relaunch the #NYEDChat on twitter. I joined the team of Tony Sinanis, Bill Brennan, Carol Varsalona, Blanca Duarte and Starr Sackstein to chat about great teaching, learning, collaboration, and what is best for our children. Right now, we are staying away from all the hullabaloo with what is happening within NY state, ie. APPR, Common Core Testing, and the such. We will be gearing our chats around great instruction. Our next chat, on Nov. 4, will be devoted to Student Engagement.
You can see that we have nothing else to do on a Friday evening and we start to plan using Google Hangout. (Me being the geek, I am using two screens, hence double screen shots!)
We will be hosting bi-weekly chats. Here are some upcoming dates and topics:
Nov. 4, 2013: Student Engagement 8;30p.m. EST
Nov. 18, 2013: How do we allow for more opportunities for social learning? 8:30p.m. EST
Dec. 2, 2013: Integrative Technology in Classroom Learning 8:30p.m. EST
We are also in the planning stages of hosting a live chat session which will be a fantastic, wild ride for our everyone. So, start following us and join our chats! Join our wiki page as well. See you in the #nyedchat!
