    #Kinderchat is a great way to connect with other K teachers. We really are a unique group of educators, teaching and learning through play. So it’s great to be with like-minded educators.

    They are super helpful, and it really helps you get excited about teaching the little ones. It will get you intrested in using technology, and they post great links.

    This is a real grass roots association of early childhood educators from around the world. I find tons of material through the hashtag #kinderchat on Twitter and also in my Facebook feed. The organizers do so much to enrich, educate, motivate teachers to try new ideas. It is very comfortable for newbies, so jump right in. The actual group chat on Twitter is off for the summer but you can find it in the fall on Mondays at 9pm EST. Check out the projects in the works or ready to start up again and you will find something that interests you and your students. It is the BEST of PD in my book.

    No one brings the global connected awesome with more creativity, empathy and glitter-glue than the #Kinderchat community. It’s a great hashtag to witness how teaching and learning is changing right before our eyes.
