Then it's all about you - ask questions, collaborate and share with other attendees (as you're comfortable) and brainstorm how you might take that idea into your classroom. Chats may wrap up in as little as 30 minutes, but never go more than an hour. Sign-up for the chats here and then join the conversation with this link.
