If you are interested in discussing how to prepare preservice teachers for the realities of today's digital classroom, then I hope you’ll join me at 9 p.m. EST tonight for #TeacherEdChat. The topic is "Social Media in Teacher Education Programs."
Here's a description of #TeacherEdChat:
The focus of #TeacherEdChat is on teacher preparation and connecting higher ed with Prek-12. The intent of #TeacherEdChat is building bridges with PK-12 to help align those enrolled in teacher education courses, undergraduate and graduate, with teachers and educators in the field. The chat provides a forum to help higher ed faculty and educators gain additional insights into the teaching field as well as help those in the teaching field get a better sense of what Schools of Education are doing.
