NASP Twitter Chat: Social Justice

The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) invites you to join us on Wednesday, August 17, 2016 at 8:00 p.m. EDT for a Twitter Chat on social justice. David Shriberg (@DrDaveShriberg), a leading expert on social justice, will facilitate an interactive conversation to:

  • promote an enhanced understanding of key social justice concepts,
  • share resources related to social justice advocacy, and
  • foster a sense of community among participants toward future engagement and support. 

Why Twitter?

Twitter is a 24/7 learning and sharing venue to ask questions, disseminate resources, and share reflections in 140-characters or less. This 140-character message is also known as a tweet. Additionally, hashtags - identified as the pound sign (#) - can be included in Tweets, so that topics can be linked together. If I am interested in articles on school climate, I can pursue a search on Twitter for #schoolclimate, which will organize tweets that include that particular hashtag.

What is a Twitter Chat?   

A Twitter Chat is a convening of people at a particular date and time, connected by one hashtag. Recently, many leaders in the education community utilize Twitter as a professional development venue. Hundreds of Twitter chats occur weekly on topics ranging from education technology, special education to online learning. Chats often have a focus and facilitators will pose questions. People who join the chat will share their responses, and reply to other participants, thus cultivating a collaborative and interactive dialogue.
