Sarah Gonzalez of WLRN's StateImpact Florida, Michel Martin of NPR's Tell Me More and John O’Connor, also of StateImpact Florida, at the October 10 Twitter Education Forum at WLRN studios in downtown Miami.
Last week’s Twitter Education Forum, hosted last week in collaboration with Tell Me More was a huge success. Not only did it provide a platform for a dynamic and diverse conversation about education reform in the US (and one that we plan to continue), but it also reached a whopping 17 million people–and counting. (That’s right. They’re stilll Tweeting. They just can’t stop!)
This week, Tell Me More and StateImpact Florida hosted an international Twitter conversation about education reform at the WLRN studios. One of the thousands of people who participated in that conversation was Cindi Rigsbee. She's a teacher and author who blogs at cindirigsbee.com. She wrote this guest post after participating in the conversation on Wednesday.
I'm Michel Martin and this is TELL ME MORE from NPR News. Coming up, we will speak with a former education official who has had a change of heart about some of the school reforms she once championed. Diane Ravitch will be with us in just a few minutes.
