NASC Tweet Chat
May 23rd, 2018
To wrap-up the 2017-2018 school year, the NASC community is participating in a Twitter chat. Tweet with fellow NASC members anytime between 7:30-4:00 on May 23rd to learn from each other and promote our community.
All those who participate will have their name entered into a drawing for one hour of extra prep the week of May 29th. Each district will have one winner. All you have to do is contribute one relevant Tweet to our chat to be entered into the drawing.
The chat will focus on creativity and innovation in our schools. The questions are loosely based on George Couros’ book “Innovator’s Mindset”, however the questions are general enough that you can participate without having read the book.
The questions for our chat:
- What is an example of a practice that would be innovative?
- What is changing our world today that not only makes innovation easier but also necessary for our students?
- How do you create opportunities for your school community to have learning driven by their personal interests?
- How do you empower others to take risks?
- What questions do you think are vital to understanding those that we serve in education?
- How do we create learning opportunities and experiences for students and staff that focus on empowerment, as
opposed to engagement?
- How do you build relationships with individuals in your district, school, classroom?
- How do you create opportunities to have your school community to have learning driven by their personal
- How do you find the balance between “mentoring” and “micromanaging” to ensure people feel comfortable to take
risks, but also feel supported?
- Which characteristics of an innovator do you excel in, and where do you need to grow?

For example, an answer to question 6 might look like:
A6 Students should have choice and be able to take control of their learning. This can include making choices in what and how they research, tools they use, and how they are assessed. #isd91 #NASCMN
Be sure to reply to Tweets as well as “like” others’ Tweets during the day. Also, the person who posts the Tweet with the most likes will earn an extra entry in the drawing. Please see a NASC member in your district if you need assistance with Twitter. There will be opportunities in each district to further your Tweeting skills.
