Google Teacher Academy: A Reflection Through Tweets Day 1

For the past 2 days I have had the privilege to learn from 50+ top educators from around the United States and Canada.  The Google Teacher Academy, this time in Austin, Texas; provided the opportunity, space, and framework for the selected cohort and lead learners to blend a student-first mindset, with a passion for edtech, topped with unwavering ambition to make a difference in education! While I will break down the specifics in future blog posts, Day 1 Focused on creating a culture of community, by building relationships with a group of educators who have mainly been only connected virtually. The following is a collection of tweets I gathered to highlight the experience.

As the day ended, we left exhausted and inspired by our design thinking, modeled after NoTosh (Mad Respect for Ewan McIntosh and Tom Barrett) and ready to continue the conversation well into the night.
Quoting my good friend Kenneth Durham, “It’s all about Relationships!” and Day 1 proved to be a beautiful start to beginning of life-long friends!
