Building Momentum and Capacity for Virginia Chat
Virginia Chat (#VAchat) was inaugurated on October 8, 2012 for the express purpose of inspiring thought-provoking conversations amongst Virginia educators on a range of topics related to improving student achievement. Superintendents, principals, teachers, parents, paraprofessionals, reading specialists, speech pathologists, parents, and other educators across the country are invited to join the live conversations via Twitter. Teachers should be encouraged to participate and use transcripts and/or artifacts from chat sessions as evidence toward professional development goals. Perhaps teachers could also earn professional development points for moderating sessions. Virginia Chat (#VAchat) sessions are hosted on Mondays at 8 pm EST on a bi-weekly basis.
