Twitter chats are one way to grow your professional learning network. Educators all sign on at the same time and tweet using a shared hashtag. It is a great way to meet like-minded educators from around the world for future collaboration and professional conversation.
Newsela will begin to co-host monthly Twitter chats with Newsela Certified Educators using the hashtag #NCEchat. Pennsylvania superstar educator Barbara Kurtz is leading our third discussion focused on sharing close reading tips and insights from the Binder that help guide instruction.
