Join us on October 8th at 9:30am (Central Standard Time) for an educational Twitter chat focused on kids! We’re inviting teachers to follow the hashtag #StuConnect and engage their students in a conversation about things that make school cool. Click HERE to view a short (3 minute) video introducing the topic.
The chat will begin at 9:30am CST and last for approximately 30 minutes. Classrooms may join or leave the conversation at any time. Questions will be posed by three moderators: @TonySinanis @JohnFritzky and @GustafsonBrad and be posted to the #StuConnect hashtag on Twitter. A sample question is below:
Q1 What’s cool in your school? #StuConnect
Teachers may respond to questions by typing A1 (answer one) and then their answers. Be sure to include the hashtag #StuConnect in each tweet. Feel free to interact with other chat participants and share classroom resources/examples that relate to the conversation. We’ve already received confirmation that schools as far away as Dubai (United Arab Emirates) will be joining us! This is a great opportunity to model citizenship for students while connecting classrooms to a global community of learners.
Social media is learning media, but we have to scaffold the experience for our students!
