TY for making #whatisschool an amazing success!
For the sixth week in a row the answers to our posted questions flew by so fast it was impossible to keep up! This tells me one thing-you, educators from around the world, are passionately motivated to share your ideas and create a global forum that will translate into a global classroom. It's exciting to be on the verge of an occasion unlike any education has seen in a hundred years. And as technology continues to revolutionize our world, making it smaller and bringing us closer, it will be amazing to see what we come up with, how we change teaching, and how our students, children and the lives we touch, change learning in ways we can not predict.

Join the conversation #whatisschool Thursday July 17 at 7PM EDT as we discuss teaching and learning on a global platform.
