Data, data, data. As practitioners we have access to A LOT of data and we know just how important the role of data is in instruction and learning. Choosing the next instructional move based on the data in hand, however, is hard to do well. Especially when you are personalizing for individual students. In this month’s #NGLCchat we will have students, practitioners, and platform designers on hand to field your questions and share some successful approaches to the use and collection of data. Please join to share your data stories (the good, bad, and ugly) so we can learn together!

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.
