October Twitter Chat Celebrating Educators - You Don't Want To Miss This One!


Over the course of October, we have been focusing on inspiring educators and providing tools on how to become one! Across our media platforms, we have shared articles, innovation pages and guest articles on the topic! As a next step, we would want to engage with you on Twitter! Let us together explore questions like "Who’s managing to do amazing things within the current system? What can educators learn from others thinking outside of the box? What resources are available for educators to professionally develop their skills?"


Where and when is the Twitter Chat?

The #HundrEDChat is hosted with the help of our community and ambassadors on the HundrED Twitter Channel. We invite everyone to actively participate in this global discussion! 

Join the conversation on Monday, 21st October 2019, at 16:00 (UTC).

This month's chat will be hosted by our Ambassador, Tyler S. Thigpen from the United States.
