Start your weekend with a free professional development and networking opportunity. Join NAESP for a Twitter chat on pre-K-3 learning communities this Saturday, June 14, from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. (Eastern).

NAESP is teaming up with the Mid-Career Doctoral Program in Education Leadership at the University of Pennsylvania for the chat.

Questions for the chat, which will use the hashtag #pennedchat, may include:

  • What is the role of technology in PK-3 education? How have you used it?
  • How does blended learning differ in the pre-K space?
  • What successful steps have you taken to develop & promote a clear vision for PK-3 education in your school?
  • What challenges have arisen as you’ve aligned PK-3 curriculum with K-5?  What suggestions do you have for others who do the same?
  • How have you focused resources to finance PK needs in your school?
  • What are some surprises that arise when a school incorporates a new pre-K program?
  • What was the best thing you did to align PK-3 education?
  • What difficulties should PK-3 principals prepare for?
