Join K-12 digital teaching experts for a live Twitter chat in celebration of Digital Learning Day (February 23) at 8p.m. EST.

#EdTechTips Chat for Digital Learning Day 2017

Some of the most powerful learning opportunities for teachers are created when they gather as a community to share experiences, compare best practices, and celebrate their successes. Each year Digital Learning Day, hosted by Future Ready Schools, helps connect thousands of U.S. teachers and classrooms to showcase digital learning and promote the use of technology to create a better education experience for students in K-12 public schools.

One of many things we’re doing to celebrate Digital Learning Day 2017 will be hosting #edtechtips, a live Twitter chat full of practical advice for teachers using technology in the classroom. The chat will be held from 8-9p.m. EST/5-6p.m. PST on February 23, 2017. To watch the conversation or join just follow the #edtechtips hashtag on Twitter.

Joining the #edtechtips conversation will be #EdChat co-founder, blogger, and learning evangelist Steven Anderson (@web20classroom), Grain Valley Schools instructional tech coach and EdTech Team speaker Kyle Pace (@kylepace), and John Hummel (@jhummel_tech), Director of Technology for Center Cass School District 66. Christine Willig, President of our School Group, will ‘takeover’ @McGrawHillK12 to offer insights from her decades of experience working with educators and technology advocates.

We hope the #edtechtips chat creates an impactful digital learning opportunity for teachers all over the U.S., so please join us to watch and learn or share insights from your own experiences!
