Let Their Voices Be Heard
this school year connected educators in New York State, along with others across the globe, have engaged in discussions and activities that exemplify a commitment to teaching and learning. Educators have willingly shared their growth and learning during educational online chats consistently. Voices filled with enthusiasm continually fill the Twittersphere. As a collective body of practitioners, they become the difference makers.
Because the teaching profession is filled with so many passionate educators with expressive voices, on Monday, May 18, 2015, the moderators of #NYEDChat, Bill Brennan, Vicki Day, Blanca Duarte, Dan McCabe, Lisa Meade, Starr Sackstein, Dennis Schug, Tony Sinanis, and I, hosted a Twitter chat titled What Works for Teachers: Will the Real #EduHeroes Please Stand Up. It was a hour of lively conversation regarding successes, positive thinking, and advocacy for continued improvements in teaching and learning. Many voices discussed the contribution of contemporary eduheroes in New York State school districts and beyond.

Below is a short video I created to encourage colleagues
using social media to link their voices with #NYEDChat.
Last year, NYEDChat opened a virtual Showcase of Teaching and Learning. Since then over 1600+ viewers have accessed the site. You can see the work that educators have posted here.
Please consider adding your voice to ours. Let the world understand the power behind a collective body of connected practitioners in which the learning of ALL students is shaped by #EduHeroes.
