Virginia Chat PLN (#VAchat) Recognized by VSBA as a Showcase for Success

The Virginia Chat PLN (#VAchat) co-founded by Travis Burns (@Dr_TravisBurns) and Phil Griffins (@philgriffins) has been recognized by the Virginia School Board Association as a 2013 Showcase for Success.  The Virginia Chat PLN is hosted by Virginia educators on Mondays at 8 pm EST via Twitter.  On April 15th the Virginia Chat PLN returns and will be moderated by Phil Griffins, an assistant principal with Williamsburg-James City Public Schools (WJCPS).  Griffins’ live chat will focus on factors influencing teacher morale.   The Virginia Chat PLN is also excited to have North Stafford High School Principal, Thomas Nichols, moderate a hot topic chat on grading practices in elementary and secondary education.  This live chat is planned for May 6th and promises to be quite engaging.  

Anyone affiliated with or having a special interest in public education is welcome to participate in the Virginia Chat PLN.  To participate use the Virginia Chat PLN hashtag (#VAchat).  Participants should use a real-time chat management tool such as Tweetdeck, Hootsuite, or Twubs to enhance the professional learning experience with #VAchat.
