What Is #UtahEdChat?
Utah Educational Chat (#UTEdChat) is a weekly online conversation exploring educational topics. The chat happens on Twitter every Wednesday night from 9-10 PM MDT. It is geared toward Utah educators but is open to anyone who is interested in participating.
Our very own Chris Larsen, Director of Educational Technology in Granite School District, will be moderating this week’s #UTEDCHAT. The topic is, “Why Isn’t Technology Getting Results?”
Here is the full upcoming schedule for September-October 2016:
