Bearcat Brief

February 23, 2017

Notes from Niki

If you're not on Twitter, you'r missing out on a valuable chance at PD. They're free, they focus on the topic you need and happen regularly. I have been participating in MoEdChat on Thursday evenings and it is a great chance to spend some time talking with inspiring teachers from across the state. Here are some chats you might want to check out:

  • #edchat- Tuesdays at 5:00 p.m. You can see archived chats at edchat.pbworks.com
  • #satchat- Saturday at 9:30 a.m.
  • Content area chats: #engchat, #mathchat, #sschat
  • #mschat- Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. Read about it on Todd Bloch's blog "Sweat to Inspire"
  • #pblchat- Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m.


All you have to do is search for the hashtag, click on all tweets and learn! Once you see how it works, you will discover like-minded people that you want to follow and offer your own answers to the questions.


If you're not interested in or confident enough to try a chat, start by following some of these great educators:
