Newton-Conover Educators Share Insights with Global Audience through #NCed Chat

ncedSince the first #NCed chat on March 26, 2013, several Newton-Conover City Schools’ educators have moderated chats and shared their insights and resources.   If you haven’t heard, #NCed chat is a bi-weekly Twitter chat for North Carolina educators and others who are interested in or invested in education. #NCed Chat will provide an opportunity for North Carolina educators to grow and develop their personal learning network (PLN) by connecting to other NC educators throughout the state .   If you are interested in learning more about #NCed Chat, check out the #NCed blog.

Each chat is archived so that practitioners can return to view the resources and comments after the chat is over.  If you are interested in catching up on some of the chats moderated by our colleagues, check these out!
