A trio of educators from the Michigan area had an innovative idea to make an authentic change within their school district. They understood that in order to get the results that they desired, there would have to be alterations within the current conditions of their school district. Their vision was to "dump the culture of compliance," and encourage "real learning". The group met quite often to discuss what this "new culture" would look like. Their meetings were so engaging and progressive, that they decided to take the meetings elsewhere. That destination was twitter. Two years ago, via twitter, these incredible individuals created what is now known as #COLCHAt. An interactive chat with educators across the globe all working to build a Culture Of Learning. The chat has been so successful that the group has decided to release a book entitled "COLChat Reflections- Creating A Culture Of Learning, One Day At A Time." The book will be published by the independent publishing company Brandon Publishing; it has also been stamped by Wall Street Journal best selling author Jon Gordon. (Release date is set for September 2015)
The trio went to the airwaves tonight to talk more about how this awesome desire to create an organic learning experience was developed. Click here to listen to the entire interview.
