Twitter Chat: Making Teaching Visible
Join us tonight at 8 PM for our weekly Twitter Chat. Our questions for consideration tonight are:
1. What ideas come to mind when you hear the phrase "Making Teaching Visible?"
2. How can we grow as a Professional Learning Community by "Making Teaching Visible?"
3. What are some ways you can collect and share examples of student work that reflect best practices for teaching and learning?
4. How can we get all campuses involved in sharing with one another?
