#NGLCchat Questions:

Q1. From Factory Model to...What? What’s the metaphor for 21st century schools and student-centered, next gen learning?

Q2. How do YOU talk about the shift to student-centered, personalized, next gen learning and schools that look and act very different from the traditional model?

Q3. Can you share a favorite story about a student or a school that reflects the shift away from the factory model toward something new -- and how that shift is being accomplished?

Q4. What are the best videos or other resources available that tell this story well?


Join the conversation on March 3, 7pm ET at #NGLCchat!


What’s a Twitter Chat? A Twitter Chat is a guided conversation where users interested in a particular topic hop onto the social network to chat. The chat is given a hashtag, which makes it easy for anyone to identify the chat and participate. It’s a topic-driven conversation happening in real time, similar to a public chat room; it just happens to take place on Twitter.

#NGLCchat occurs once a month, each time featuring a different aspect of personalized learning. The next #NGLCchat will be on April 7, 7-8:00 pm ET.
