I have to admit, I was a bit nervous this morning as we prepared to kick off our Global Tweets Twitter Chat. That said, the Global Classroom Connections Committee first ever Twitter Chat as part of the first ever Global Collaboration Day event was a great success. We were excited to participate in this event and had a lot of fun connecting with others! View our questions and getting started with Twitter chats document here.

According to Global Education Conference Network, earlier in the week over 186 schools and organizations from 34 different countries had signed up for the 80 events listed for the event! GECN goal is to connect educators and organizations across the globe. GECN is hosting their sixth annual global conference this November from Monday, November 16 through Thursday, November 19, 2015.
