Edchat Interactive - a new type of free, online PD that is relevant, timely, interactive and social


Edchat Interactive is a new type of free, online PD brought to you by some of the same folks who created #echat twitter discussions, including Tom Whitby and Steven Anderson, who are both friends of mine and in my Personal Learning Network and great educators.

This new form of PD is relevant and timely for educators, and made to create a discussion that is engaging and helps you learn new skills and information. The online format allows for interaction, reflection and social learning.

Here are some of the free sessions coming up next week:

Customized, Personalized Learning: Is it Inevitable? Feb 26, 8:00 PM Eastern
