#whatisschool June 12, 2014

                                                               THANK YOU!

For making our first #whatisschool a roaring success!
Please scroll down for tonight's archive.

Tonight was an amazing example of the passion and insight teachers bring to their profession.  Hearing new ideas and concerns from people all over the world was not only enlightening, but energizing, What I took away was, we are on the right path. Through dialogue and exchange teachers and concerned persons can shape the next generation of schools in an image that is not only good but will help nurture students who will blow us away with their great ideas.

The questions for next week's chat on THURSDAY June 19 will be posted here at the top of the week.  Please follow @candylandcaper and bookmark this site for updates. The archive of tonight's session is posted below.

Co-moderated by author, speaker Laura Hill @candylandcaper and international educator Craig Kemp @Mrkempnz  Please contact either of us with your questions and ideas, we'd love to hear from you!

What is school? And how does our impression of it change the way we teach?

In many people's minds school was created to fuel an industrial age workforce, creating methodologies that honed marketable skills during an exciting time of change.  Today we are on the brink of another exciting time of change, The Information Age. How will teaching change to match the needs of a new world that emphasizes technology and communication?  

Join us Thursday, June 12 at 7pm EST as we explore the possibilities #whatisschool 

We hope to create an unbiased forum where teachers can have voice in shaping the future by sharing their ideas, experiences and recommendations with other educators and interested persons around the world. The following TED talk by marketer Seth Godin provides a good perspective to start a conversation.

Here are the questions:

Q1) If someone asked you, "What is school," what would you say? 

Q2) How is school changing for today's students, teachers and parents?

Q3) What are some of the challenges modern educators face?

Q4) How can these challenges be overcome?

Q5) What is the impact of technology on literacy and creativity?

Q6) How have you integrated technology into your lessons?

Q7) If you could change one thing about school what would it be?

Q8) What is your biggest roadblock to change or should school not change at all?

Q9) What is the most crucial skill teachers need today?

Q10) If you could create the school of your dreams, what would it be like?
