After a short conversation on Twitter (as these things tend to happen) we decided it would be interesting and worthwhile to start a primary education chat, (#PrimEdChat), to discuss issues in and around the subject of primary education. Not as a replacement for the already existing, very lively and interesting, EdChats that already happen throughout the week, but as a supplement, one that focuses intentionally on issues that concern educators involved in Early Year, Key Stage 1, and Key Stage 2.
– The conversation will be every Wednesday night between 8:00 and 9:00 PM.
– Please remember to use #PrimEdChat in each of your tweets, that way everyone will be able to follow the discussion.
– The topic of each Weds discussion will be decided by Monday morning and we will publish a post on PrimaryBlogging with a short introduction to the subject and links to relevant blogs and other reading etc. (if applicable).
– If you would like to suggest a topic for discussion, please tweet @primaryblogger1 using #PrimEdChat.
Please use the comments section below if you have any suggestions or remarks concerning the organisation of this discussion.
Although the conversation will be centred on the concerns of primary education, everyone is welcome to contribute. Our aim is to develop an open, respectful, and productive dialogue and to share experiences, strategies, and ideas that will help improve our professional practice and create successful and worthwhile outcomes for our students.
