Over the course of the week spanning December 9 through December 16, IDOE conducted the first-ever #INedchat slow chat, moderated by Chief Communication Strategist, Holly Stachler (@Holly_Stachler). This conversation afforded participants the opportunity to share and collaborate with colleagues in their own time. Questions were posted each weekday during the week at 7 a.m. and responses were shared as folks checked in when it was convenient for them.
In observance of many Indiana schools being on Fall Break, #INedchat live chats paused on October 14 and 21. During this time, our team prepared for a strong finish for the second semester. Topics planned include Effective Intervention Practices, #INedchat's One Year Anniversary Celebration, Overcoming the Achievement Gap Trap, Serving Homeless Students, and a Student Take-Over Focused on SEL. We look forward to facilitating these important conversations in the coming weeks!
