Since the inception of #EdChatRI we have always had great support from the commissioner and members of RIDE and we want to do our part to help give back, so this weekend's chat will be focused on Developing the RI Strategic Plan. For the past month or so there has been a survey floating around the state asking for input from RI educators at all levels. The goal for the state is to have over 10,000 responders and at the time of this posting there are about 8800 who have done their part. In order for our voices to be heard, we have to take the five minutes to put forward our thoughts on a variety of questions and topics pertaining to the future of education in our state. I will include the link to the survey in this posting and we will also dedicate our weekly conversation to discussing the main topics put forth in the survey. As we have said many times our #EdChatRI PLN is an amazing group and this discussion will be Storifyed and shared with RIDE to help them determine the future path of education in our state. This will be the last chat of 2014 as we will be taking next Sunday off. We will see you back on Sunday January 4th, 2015.

As we come off of our third annual #EdCampRI it makes me reflect on how PD has changed over the years and how technology has helped in that evolution. Any of you who have taken part in an "UnConference" style of PD, know just how different and how powerful it can be. Is this the best type of PD we can create for ourselves and our staff. Join us on #EdChatRI on Sunday night at 8 PM as we discuss just what it takes to create effective PD.
