Successful #AASSA Twitter Chat

The first #AASSA slow Twitter chat took place on September 27 with the topic: What do you want to achieve as an international educator? and the main purpose of connecting and amplifying learning of international educators in the AASSA region.

A Personal Learning Network (PLN) is being seen by many as one of the best professional development support for the 21st century educator to live and experience for their own learning the skills and literacies they are to embed in their teaching and support a shifting mindset in education.

A slow chat usually spans across a full day (or a week), as opposed to 60 minutes. 4 questions were released throughout the day. No worries, if you missed the chat, it is not too late to learn from and connect with the participants. You will find the archive of the conversation tweets during the day below, strung together by the #AASSA hashtag. Do join in at any time, read and be inspired by the tweets and follow the participants via their twitter handle.
