CHAT QUESTIONS:

Paying it Forward/ Giving Back

1. What does paying it forward mean to you? What does giving back mean to you?

2. Share a story of a memorable pay-it-forward moment.

3. What are some ways your school community pays it forward?

4. Why do you think giving back feels better than receiving?

5. What are some little things you can you do to pay it forward? How about something that doesn’t cost any money?

*These same 5 questions will be used for the Slow Chat all month long. Where necessary, questions have been reworded for younger Tweeters. We recommend classes spend time answering the questions ahead of time so time during the chat can be spent liking tweets, retweeting, quoting tweets in reply, and collaborating with others.

An Invitation to Join OnEdMentors Connect

Since January 2018 we have been building a vision for a community where teachers learn from each other in a personalized, non-hierarchical, open and self-directed way. Today we would like to extend an invitation to you to join the OnEdMentors Connect (OEMConnect) community.

OnEdMentors Connect began as a way to build mentorship relationships to help cultivate a culture of learning and build teacher capacity for improved student achievement and well-being. We partnered with voiced Radio as a platform for sharing, reflection and learning that could further amplify our responsiveness to the needs of mentors and mentees within this inclusive and evolving space.

In phase one, we invited mentors to build their profiles in Digital Human Library.  Then, we invited a handful of mentees in their first and second year of teaching to search for and find a mentor that suited their learning needs. As the excitement continued to build (just like the Dating Game!) we openly discussed the process and our learning on the weekly OnEdMentors Show on voicEd radio. Our final show is scheduled for November 15th when we will hear back from our mentors and mentees about their overall experience.

As we gear up for Phase 2 launching in January 2019, we are ready to enlist a larger community of mentors and mentees.

Learn more and Register for OnEdMentors Connect

We hope you will find out more, share our tweets and consider becoming part of this community. The time commitment is minimal and it’s an opportunity for you to learn and grow with other educators. We all have something to teach, and we all have something to learn. Now, we all have a shared space to do this together.

Thank you for your time and consideration. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us!
