A Chat to Remember

Last night I moderated a Twitter chat. It wasn’t heavily attended, but the conversation flowed. I thought back to an urgent phone call from a frazzled colleague.

“I have to host a Twitter chat! I don’t even know what that means!”

We plotted, we dreamed, we schemed… and she hosted. #wyasdpride was born. Three tech coaches and a teacher/grad student made it happen.

Now, it happens once a month w a steady, growing group and new moderators volunteering each month. We have started a movement. I’m proud of the teachers in my district who are willing to give an hour a month and share their thoughts and feelings about education online.

It’s powerful. Parents watch. School board members watch. Administrators watch. But most importantly, our students and other educators watch.

It’s a testimony to our dedication. See preview here.

I am #wyasdpride proud! Join us April 30th at 7:15pm for our next monthly chat. If you just want to lurk and learn that’s okay as well!
