If You Build It, They Will Come: Launching a District Twitter Chat

Session description: On any given school day, educators are both surrounded by people and isolated from their peers as they carry out the day’s work. While this can leave many feeling disconnected, connecting with other educators online can help mitigate some of the isolating nature of our work. Aaron Hogan and Jeremy Stewart (co-creators of #CSISDchat) share about the process of creating, launching, and sustaining a district Twitter chat. Together they will touch on the challenges those who want to launch a district chat can expect and provide a brief framework for developing your own district community online that creates conversations that serve as a catalyst for change. If you’re an administrator who wants to help your teachers grow, this session is for you.

But failure to meet behavior expectations is often met with an assumption of willful disobedience and a disciplinary consequence. Let’s explore the benefits of teaching our expectations for student behavior with the best practices often reserved for academic work.
