Edchat is a Community
A project like Edchat runs on a community and that community is made up of your enormous contributions. Every Tuesday, you debate, share resources, ask difficult questions, and collaborate with others on how to improve the condition of education. Above and beyond this, you propose and vote for the questions we discuss, blog about the topics discussed, and participate in the Edchat group on the Educators PLN ning. If you haven’t yet, please join! In the group, you can find out more about Edchat projects like the wikipedia article, Edchat wiki page, and various interviews and articles that have come about!
If you haven’t had the chance to join an Edchat conversation, please watch this video which explains more and read this post to help you participate!
